Sicily: 15-Course Seafood Dinner
15-Course Seafood Dinner
Via Torretta, 78
+39 091 532934
I was told to expect the best seafood in Sicily, and lots of it. Over the past year or so, I’ve been training my palate to acquire a taste for seafood, unaware of the marathon meal that was ahead. Some friends took us to their favorite spot in Palermo, where €25 per person gets you 15 courses. Take a look at some of the family-style seafood plates we devoured.
Frutti di mare cold seafood salad.
Bait. That's what I called it. Looks like fried bait.
Pasta with clams.
Penne with tuna and octopus.
Sgroppino lemon sorbet to end the meal and clean the fish taste from our mouths.
I felt privileged to be taken to an authentic Sicilian seafood restaurant, where locals come for a good meal. I was the only tourist in sight, and I walked away feeling like I was let in on a secret. Down 15 plates, and countless bottles of wine, it's time to go home.
