Pesce all’Acqua Pazza – A Taste of the Amalfi Coast

By August 23, 2016 Blog, Main course, Recipes 26 Comments

I make Pesce all’Acqua Pazza (Fish in Crazy Water) when I’m homesick for my Italian family. It’s so easy and flavorful. I can make this and close my eyes and I’m sitting on the patio at Il Ritrovo overlooking the sea.IMG_5743

IMG_7320To me this dish screams of the sun, the sea and the people I love so much.IMG_6181My students are always amazed at how simple and flavorful this is. One thing I’ve learned cooking alongside the Italians is its quality over quantity, prepare it simply and enjoy it with friends. How can you go wrong with that?
