This is one of Primo Estate winemaker and owner Joe Grilli’s all time favourite dishes from his parent’s home region of Ascoli Piceno in Le Marche on the central Adriatic coast of Italy. Joe says ‘Dishes like this are EXACTLY why we make the JOSEPH d’Elena Pinot Grigio’.
The mix of different seafood is key to the success of this dish – in Le Marche there would be at least 12 different kinds! Fresh squid and prawns in the shell are a must. Use firm fleshed fish like flathead, snook, snapper, ling, barramundi, red mullet, fresh tuna and swordfish either filleted or on the bone as you prefer. For shellfish try cockles, a handful or mussels and cleaned and quartered blue swimmer crab. Avoid delicate fish like whiting and garfish.
