Fresh Fishes from Lake Como
Cari amici, our wonderful Lake Como does not only please us with a beautiful landscape. The Lario has also plenty to offer in view of the culinary aspect. In the clear, in places 425 meters deep waters of the Lake live approx. 30 different species of fish. On the menus of almost all Ristorante you find allis shad (Finten), Alborellen, burbots, whitefish, missoltini, pesce persico and more. The freshly caught fish will be offered marinated, grilled, baked, fried or pickled. A very popular fish dish is the risotto al persico. The persico is a kind of perch.
Who orders fritto misto di Lago, receives a fish platter with different types of fish, fried in sage butter and mouth-watering flavoured with fresh herbs. Also typical for Lake Como is a special shad-dish. You find the recipe here.
Have fun preparing the meal and buon appetito.
Tanti saluti e a presto
