In the December number – Palatifini explained the Cappon Magro one of the finest examples of ligurian cuisine, taking its name from the tub gurnard, or “capon fish”. It’s a combination of skilfully dressed poached fish and vegetables, laid on top of one another and each layer brushed with plenty of salsa verde, the tipically Ligurian parsley-based sauce. The base is made up of traditional gallette del marinaio, a type of round cracker. The whole dish is elaborately garnished with lobster, oysters and prawns. You can’t deny your taste buds the pleasure of Cappon Magro!
