Eat­ing well, the way Ital­ians do

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - Ed­uardo Rozzini

I do a fair bit of fish­ing back home in Italy, not in the sea, in a lake. What we catch de­pends on the sea­son.

We catch per­sico (perch). They don’t get very big but they are enough. We fish from the shore with a rod.

But the best fish I ever caught was near my town, up in the north of Italy, where I caught I huge branzino (Euro­pean seabass).

We out early in the morn­ing and trav­elled about 20 min­utes to the lake.

It felt very great to me when I got this fish on the line.

It was very ex­cit­ing. It took about five min­utes to get it in. I had to ask my fa­ther for ad­vice on what to do. I was the first time I had a fish of that size and it was a bit tricky, it was very an­gry.

But we got it to shore and I was very happy, very proud.

I went to my mother and said ‘look what I have caught’.

They are very good to eat. We made it in the oven with some rose­mary and ex­tra virign oil, it was amaz­ing. And pota­toes, very sim­ple, very tasty.

And of course white wine to go with that. It was a verdic­chio, very fruity, very tasty.
