This Sunday saw me making another treat for my family… Filetti di baccala’ fritti! The Italian response to fish and chips without chips of course! 🙂
The batter is simple… Flour, a couple spoons olive oil, a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of baking soda, then enough water to make a smooth batter. set it aside for at least half hour before starting to fry the haddock fillets. Before dipping them in the batter (make sure the are all well and evenl coated!) it pays to lightly flouring them.
These are great as a starter or even as part of a buffet… But my folks and GrandMa and Hubble had them after a plate of spaghetti, pomodoro e basilico.
of course, should you want to try…
As for me, as the title suggests… Well, I am trying to keep up with some detox,hence, while frying, I used my Mum’s steamer to cook some Calabrese, cavolo Nero and sliced carrots ad partook with broccoletti, also known in the US as rapini!,and a small globe artichoke… Oh well, better get going with this detox… Only reason to look forward to the normal routine… But really the only one, holidays are good!
And yes, in case you were wondering… My two favourite smoothie recipes have made it on the Guardian Witness!
Next up, New Year’s Eve and plans are in the cards…
