Madamada I have a question for you

Ciao Madamada,

I was looking at the pictures you have posted in your blog and foodwise of fish that you have cooked in vine leaves and I'd like to ask you:

In case the leaves arent big enough to wrap 1 whole fish can you use more than 1 leaf?
Does the taste of the leaf pass to the fish?
You have cooked it in an oven but I suppose you could have cooked in the BBQ no?

Thanks big_smile

P.S. - Do you take the photos yourself? You certainly have amazing photos on your blog. Bellíssimo! thumbsup

ciao Sergio grazie big_smile
I did not wrap the fish, I only covered it with the vine leaves letting air go under them, I did not want the fish to be dry nor too moist as in "al cartoccio" when it's sealed in tin foil.
I think runner wraps them for bbq or did I work with imagination roll
the leaves were brown and dry at the end but the taste of the fish was perfect

by the way do you know the english for mormora? it's the bigger one and a little pinkish in my pic

Re: Madamada I have a question for you

The ones with the stripes yes? I believe they re called striped seabream.
The latin name is Pagellus mormyrus and they belong to the same family as the other 2 ones, Sparidae
Very good fish, unfortunantely they're usually only available in the south of Portugal, Algarve and so. We call them Ferreira here.

mmmm Ferreiras... dribble

Re: Madamada I have a question for you

Mada, I've been looking for a translation for you, but all I've come up with is from the verb 'mormorare'. Do you know another name for this fish?

Re: Madamada I have a question for you

they are both of the same family as Sergio says and the other name I can find is pagello that's all but I've found more recipes "al cartoccio" so thumbsup instinctively I have chosen a not too bad way of cooking it/them wink  big_smile

Re: Madamada I have a question for you

I tried Wikipedia in Italian, and found a link to here - http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/Species … hp?ID=706. If you click on "more" in common names, it gives a list including, in UK English, "striped sea bream". Apparently, it-s a close relative of the "dorada", which is farmed here in Spain.

Re: Madamada I have a question for you

Re: Madamada I have a question for you

Dourada has got to be one of my favourite fishes. I've eaten farmed (national) of course and they re quite good but the wild ones are absolutely fantastic. My dad has them most of the times, from 1 to 5 or 6 Kg. They have such a strong flavour. Its mainly due to their diet.
I was fortunate to catch one, once sad  but was a small one  sad  still they fight a lot it seems you re catching a shark... mrgreen

mmm douradas... dribble
