Filetti di Pesce Spatola in Crema di Peperoni

Spatula Fish Fillets in Pepper Cream

Paddlefish fillets are a brightly colored dish that is simple and quick to make and fairly inexpensive. I suggest it as a second course in a summer or autumn lunch, since the cream that accompanies the fish fillets is made with peppers , whose seasonality goes from summer to autumn.

Ingredients (4 people)


  1. Start with the preparation of the pepper and red onion cream, sautéing the peppers and onion cut into slices, salted and peppered in extra virgin olive oil.

  2. Let them stew with the lid on, so that they keep the humidity and don't stick to the pan.

  3. As soon as the peppers and onions are well stewed, blend everything, taste and, if necessary, add salt.

  4. Have the fishmonger fillet the spatula, salt the spatula fillets, flour them, fry them in extra virgin olive oil and let them drain on absorbent paper.

  5. Toast the pine nuts in a non-stick pan.

  6. Desalt the capers: immerse them for about an hour in cold, clean water and then squeeze them. After that, cut them into small pieces.

Assemble this second course by first placing a layer of pepper cream, then the spatula fish fillets and finally capers and pine nuts.
