The sicilian stewed amberjack recipe for me it's a special recipe: is a traditional Sicilian dish that I've always eaten at home, prepared by Grandma and mom, and so reminds me of my childhood and the flavors of my land. On my YouTube channel also find the VIDEO RECIPE step by step. The Sicilian stewed amberjack is one of the delicious fish stew and I would call it a unique dish because it has potatoes, tomatoes and a nice sauce in which to make the shoe with a slice of homemade bread.
This recipe in Sicily it is often also called ‘amberjack to LAN‘, because of the typical sauce of Lipari. The amberjack stewed Sicilian prepares, as you can see from the video, in just a few moves and even less time and I'm sure, it with your eyes closed, you feel like you're in Sicily. Alternatively, you can also try TAIL OF TOAD IN STEW, with a quick red sauce with parsley and green olives.
How to cook the amberjack
You will see that many recipes the amberjack is baked in the oven: the thing works, in my opinion, When you bake a whole Yellowtail (are fish that arrive at consistent weights) but it doesn't work with a slice or slice that, in my opinion, kiln drying hopelessly. In this case, the amberjack is lightly floured and seared in oil, then set aside and together at the end with sauce: so will remain rosy and soft, and a little flour thicken up a bit’ the sauce will become smooth and tasty.
