  • About

Pike is one of those awkward fish that are difficult to cook as their flavour and texture are somewhat limiting. In the lakes of Lombardy they are plentiful and are cooked in this flavourful stew with red wine and vegetables. The recipe works with any rich, meaty fish – tuna is ideal, and does not have the awkward little bones of a pike.
