Judy Witts Francini put up a photo on Instagram yesterday of a dish called ‘pesce finto’, meaning ‘fake fish’. I am not sure it’s the sort of recipe that would appeal to people outside Italy. Which is a shame because I, and Judy evidently too, think it is quite delicious, not to mention easy to prepare. Basically it is tinned tuna and mashed potatoes … both usually a staple in any home.
I wrote a post about it a few years ago which I don’t mind reposting. The recipe is my tweak on this recipe which also includes burrata – and so many people I know adore burrata: https://myhomefoodthatsamore.wordpress.com/2013/05/31/faking-fish-il-pesce-finto/
I hope you enjoy reading about this Italian nursery food comfort dish. Who knows, you might even be prompted to try it out.
