Every day at Restaurante Martin Berasategui is full of surprises and surprises come in many shapes and sizes. This sorpresa happened to be a gigantic, scaley surprise in the form of corvina.
David de Jorge and his crew at Robin Food were cooking up corvina and happened to receive a huge, larger-than-life-sized corvina. They used a smaller one for the actual grabación (filming), but can you imagine this big guy as a prop in the background? Ay!
I tried some of the [smaller] corvina they seared up and for a rather meaty fish, it was very jugoso (juicy). But let’s not forget that tasty things come in all sizes:
Nothing excites me more than a seafood delivery, especially when it brings anchoas (aka boquerones)! I have yet to find anything that begins to compare with the anchoas in País Vasco. I’m going to sound like a broken record sooner or later, but these are la hostia!
