    Cook's tips

    Cooking with the fish skin on improves its flavour and holds the fish together when you turn it on the grill. You can choose to eat it or leave it as you prefer.

    Drinks recommendation

    This fresh and simple fish dish would be perfect with Sant’Elisa Tocai Friulano 2008 Friuli Grave DOC, Italy. This delicate dry white exudes alluring aromas of white flowers before gliding across the palate to leavea a delectablenutty note in the finsh that will pick out the walnuts in the salsa.
