For seafood lovers, even in winter, Here is a meat sauce that puts in a good mood, because it's easy, rich and colorful: fillets of sea bream, mussels and fresh tomato. A simple and delicious dish, as long as you use a sea bream and not of breeding, more fat and less tasty. Once you put aside the fillets, using head and bones to make a balloon that will give a strong taste of the sea to plate. The pieces of bream and mussels are added only at the last moment, just blanched, in a way that preserves texture and flavor. As you know, I am a sucker fish: This dish can be prepared in any season with the catch of the day: so you can eat a good pasta dish without going to the restaurant. If you are thinking about a fish menu for Christmas or new year, This could be your choice. And happy holidays to all!
