  • About

As in Curly Endive with Anchovies, the fish and greens in this classic Jewish dish traditionally hold equal weight in flavor intensity. To stay closer to this original concept, opt for a stronger fish such as tuna or mackerel. If you should decide to use a mild fish like flounder, cod, or sea bass, the bitter endive will predominate. To enliven the staid fish-and-bitter-greens theme, I like to add sautéed onions, capers, and olives to the cooked greens. Al
