Chops grilled swordfish. From Messina the spring rolls are my daily bread: those of swordfish are fabulous, Thanks to the meat of this fish, Bianca, soda, consistent. Unfortunately the right cut to make these rolls is unknown outside Sicily, but I did my best making me cut into very thin slices and then I cut alone in form closest to the original and I jokes to make them uniform. Inside there are bread crumbs, provolone cheese and parsley and serve with parsley sauce, anchovies, vinegar. These are made to grid, but they are also very good the Swordfish chops cooked in tomato sauce. Is, one of my favorite recipes for swordfish, There are also swordfish tempting to Messina, the delicious sword fish au gratin baked Sicilian, the swordfish in a water bath at Messina And the Caponata Di Pesce Spada.

100 grams of stale bread crumbs

extra virgin olive oil as required

6 large or 10 small capers desalted

Swordfish rolls with parsley sauce

To prepare the swordfish rolls, mix in a bowl the breadcrumbs, pecorino, parsley and finely chopped capers, provolone cut into tiny pieces and as much oil as necessary to obtain a soft dough but ginned. Season with salt.

Place on each slice of swordfish a little stuffing and fold the long sides inwards, then roll it on itself short edge to form a bundle tightly closed as in photography. Tuck the roll into a wooden stick and proceed like this for all the rolls. Pass the skewers of swordfish chops to messina in extra virgin olive oil and then in a little grated bread and set aside.

For the parsley sauce, place all ingredients in a bowl and blend with the mixer, seasoning salt and vinegar if necessary according to your taste. I don't make a smooth sauce, why I prefer a little more consistent.

Heat the grill on fire after having slightly greased with oil and bake the rolls over medium heat. When they are golden brown on each side will be ready: Since it's fish cooks really quickly. Serve the swordfish skewers of pork chops on a bed of salad and accompany them with parsley sauce.

MATCHING: In this dish, the sword goes to cheeses and smears. Therefore, We suggest a rosé and sparkling. We chose the Rosé Brut of the company Terraces of Etna, produced with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, According to the classic method. Scents of red berries, a fine and a decent minerals are the main features of this Sicilian wine.
