Secrets of Fish Filleting and Grilling
Available: Year round
Group size: 2-6 guests
Duration: 6+ hours
The dishes we’ll prepare in this class will reflect the seasonal best from Pula’s fish market that day. When we come to Ližnjan you’ll first learn how to easily clean and fillet the fish, shells, prawns… The heads and spines will be used for a generous fish stock, a must have in preparation of practically all fish dishes.
Our first course will be fish carpaccio and tartare that we will put to rest in the fridge. Then you’ll learn how to prepare the creamiest seafood risotto and juiciest seafood pasta you have ever tasted, all this without the use of any heavy cream and other kinds of thickeners. In the meantime, if the weather allows, the wood fired barbecue will be ready to receive the fish we cleaned previously. You’ll acquire techniques for properly preparing fish on the barbecue. In case of bad weather, don’t worry, the oven and a good heavy-bottom grill pan can do miracles. And for your sweet tooth, we’ll bake one traditional Istrian dessert paired with dark chocolate mousse prepared with extravirgin olive oil.
