Ok. Ok. Ok. I know I posted a butter recipe just the other day and today I am already sharing another one. But I really just couldn’t help myself. You see, earlier this week I was reminded that just about a year ago Ryan and I were eating our way across Italy for the 2nd time in as many years. This time we had unbelievably fresh seafood Milan, perfectly medium rare steaks in Siena and fried zucchini flowers in Rome. And while personally, I think the food was the best in Siena, there was one meal, in Bellagio, that I still think about to this day. And today, I share it with you.
When we sat down and scanned the menu at Trattoria San Giacomo on that breezy evening, it didn’t take long for my eyes (and stomach) to lock into the idea of the pan fried perch with sage butter sauce. And when it arrived, believe me when I tell you that first bite was pure heaven. It was crunchy, tender, buttery and the sage gave it a nice earthy flavor. I don’t know what the etiquette is in Italy so I had to resist the urge to lick my plate clean, but I may have ran my finger along the edge just to get the last bit of butter sauce.
Note: I couldn’t find perch here so I went with cod. You could use any other firm white fish you like. Halibut would be good and I also happen to like tilapia like this.
