The Conversational Italian! Facebook group has been discussing their favorite main course dishes, and of course these include fish dishes. The Italians know many wonderful ways to prepare fish – as you would expect, since they are surrounded by the sea and fresh fish is in abundance. They also import fish from their Scandinavian neighbors. Fish is also important as an appetizer in Italy. One of my favorites is called “fritto misto,” a large platter of fresh fish and shellfish fried in a light batter and presented beautifully for all to share. I’d love to hear about more Italian favorites! Continue the conversation on this blog, and join us on our Facebook group if you like!
