Since I was little my parents used to take me out for a fish meal every so often. That’s when I learned to enjoy clams, mussels, prawns, langoustines.. and all the shellfish available on the day.
During the summer months my mum would often barbecue fish in the garden to give us a treat for dinner.
This is what I am doing now for my children, so they can learn to enjoy the flavour of real, fresh fish too.
I cook fish twice a week and try different types to avoid getting stuck on the same meals. Children can get bored so easily!
Whilst on holiday in Italy we all went to a local fishing village called Marano Lagunare situated on a lagoon in the Adriatic sea. Here every summer there is a cute little fish festival by the sea.
This town is small and very pretty and has a distinctive Venetian style.
We started off with a refreshing aperitive with Prosecco, fizzy water for the children and nibbles which are always served in Italy if you are having wine.
We then went for a walk in town and then sat down to enjoy our fish meal by the sea: food, drink and music for everyone!
