  • Venetian-style fish with onions & pine nuts

    I very clearly remember the little restaurant in Venice where I first ate “pesce in saor” or marinated fish. I immediately fell in love with the sweet and sour combination of this dish. Served at room temperature, the fish, often sardines, are first pan-fried, then bathed in olive oil with sweet, cooked onions, raisins and pine nuts along with the vinegar which adds a note of sharpness.
