On our first visit to Taranto, Vivienne and I ate on a lovely terrace at the restaurant Al Canale, near the historic city square, with the canal flowing by and people everywhere speaking their ancient dialect. This dish was served as one of the antipasti dishes. We have suggested you use kingfish, but you can use any other tender white fish of your liking. Make sure you slice it diagonally and as thinly as possible.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
600g kingfish fillets
1 green apple, grated
1 celery stalk, grated
1 tablespoon capers
1/2 lemon, juiced
2-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
pinch pink lake salt

Breadcrumb topping

Quantity Ingredient
25g dry breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
1/2 lemon, zested

Method

  1. Slice the fish diagonally and very thinly and place the slices, side by side, on a plate, starting from the middle of the plate and fanning out to the edges in a circular fashion. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator until needed.
  2. For the topping, in a small frying pan toast the breadcrumbs gently in the olive oil over low heat for 2 minutes. Add the parsley and lemon zest and cook for a few more minutes until the breadcrumbs are golden and crispy. Remove the topping from the pan and cool until needed.
  3. Place the apple and celery in a bowl along with the capers, lemon juice and olive oil. Mix well.
  4. When ready to serve, drizzle the apple dressing over the fish and sprinkle with the pink lake salt.
  5. Top with the breadcrumbs and some freshly ground black pepper and serve.
