Posted by Hello
The grilled sgombri (mackerel) I ordered was deboned and utterly devoid of the mustiness so often associated with this fish - it was of a spanking freshness that tasted of the sea. Served with preternaturally sweet cherry tomatoes, ripened by the intense Sicilian sun, crescents of pungently aromatic Tropea onion, and a frothy oregano-inflected sabayon, it was nothing short of stunning.
