White clam sauce linguine is a classic Italian! This sauce is very simple but needs prime quality ingredients; the more the shellfish are fresh, the more the clam sauce will be tasty! Personally, I love to add a teaspoon of grated lemon peel combined with minced parsley just before serving; a sweet and sour taste that pairs greatly with the salty flavor of the clams!
Italian salsa verde is a traditional sauce originally served along with boiled meats and fish, but merely spread on bread crostini and pecorino cheese is so good as well! The traditional recipe wants white vinegar, but I prefer to use the juice and the peels of a lemon. In this way, the taste of the salsa verde will be more delicate!
Broccoli rabe pasta is a recipe I love to prepare all year long. Simple ingredients and artisan Orecchiette are the secrets of this recipe! I like to prepare broccoli rabe pasta vegetarian version, but today I make for you the red snapper version, delicious and healthy!
This Easy tomatoes sauce is so tasty and fast to prepare! Tomatoes are cooked along with garlic and sweet basil, just the time to soft them. The more tomatoes are ripe, the more sauce will be delicious! To prepare this recipe a vegetable mill is not mandatory, but I strongly suggest to use it. A blender works fine as well, but the sauce texture will be not the same!
This Grilled Sea bass recipe perfectly combines my Italian flair with the flavors of Latin America. Italians love to marinate protein with wine and Chilean sea bass is great with this tasty technique. The wine breaks down the tissue allowing the assimilation of the flavors. Lime juice and mixed herbs enhance the taste of the fish. I paired sea bass with crunchy green beans, previously marinated with Kosher salt and garlic, then quickly grilled. This easy recipe is great for your barbecue party! It needs to be marinate only a few hours, which makes it possible to prepare both fish and green beans in advance at home, or directly into a cooler bag.
Shrimp stock is one of the basic preparation I love keep on hand. A basic recipe useful in plenty of preparation: in my freezer can’t miss a jar and a ice cubes tray of shrimp stock. Here I decided to reveal my family recipe! Shrimp shell give a particular flavor to this broth. Lemon, vegetables and spices help to give bold taste.

Oven roasted octopus is the the baked version of a classic summer Italian dish. Seafood is reduced into pieces, then baked with potatoes and capers. Potatoes are roasted until golden. Octopus has to be crispy and dark violet. The sour taste of wine will balance the sweet of octopus and potatoes. A suggestion: salt lightly just a couple of minutes before finishing the oven roasted octopus, an only if necessary.
Cuttlefish stew with green peas is a classic Central Italian dish. Lazio and Campania cuisines are fighting the fatherhood of this recipe for centuries, and the question in not resolved yet! The cuttlefish are slow cooked with a tasty tomato sauce. The green peas have to be soft but not mushy. I like serve this cuttlefish stew with bread slices, but it is very delicious served with rice or tossed with pasta as well!
These Sauteed shrimps are very easy to prepare, and tasty! I love serve them as appetizer, but they are great also as a snack, paired with beer or white wine. Furthermore, the sauteed shrimps are perfect for flavorful salads or sandwiches.
