The halibut, which is a flounder

June 27th, 2018 | main dishes

The name is misleading, because strictly speaking, the white halibut is a flounder, because he is right-eyed. His body is brown-black and white on the “blind side”, hence the name. It can become incredible four meters long. Ours was not that big…

White halibut is one of our favourite fish. It comes along fine-aromatic while low-fat and the preparation in the oven is very simple. A feast, which is superfast on the table. Promised.

White halibut on leek

(serves 4 to 6)

1,200 g white halibut
rinse, pat dry, spice with salt and pepper
½ bunch of flat leave parsley

4 spring onions, as a whole

Cavatelli alle Vongole – pasta with clams

Recently my dearest Captain was on shore leave in Molfetta/Italy together with Leonardo. They had pasta with clams and he raved about this dish in our evening phone call. There, I decided to make my try and prepare it at home one day. Luckily, Leonardo gave him a packet of original south Italian Cavatelli pasta to take home – they are said to be the best pasta ever with clams.
