Tonno alla griglia con briciole
Grilled tuna steak with garlic breadcrumbs

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my grilled tuna steak with garlic breadcrumbs for you to enjoy.

Every now and then fish and chips in the UK is a must, but I must admit I often prefer my fish in breadcrumbs rather than batter – they make a far lighter coating that really means you taste the fish – and with this recipe I’ve come up with a much healthier but still delicious version. Tuna is such tasty meaty fish and the breadcrumbs add a bit of luxury to it. A crisp salad is all you need to round off the meal but if you really fancy some carbs, try my couscous or lentil salad.

Pizza con zucca voilina, cipolla rossa, cavolo nero, Dolcelatte e nociButternut Squash, Red Onion, Cavolo Nero & Dolcelatte Pizza With Walnuts

I wanted to try something different from a traditional pizza topping and I’m glad I did, as this pizza is delicious. The sweetness of the butternut squash works perfectly with the earthy cavolo nero, and the walnuts give added texture. When making this pizza for my vegan friends, I use a little tomato pizza sauce on the base and pile on all the other toppings minus the Dolcelatte. Serve with a green...

Soufflé Di Banane e CioccolatoBanana & Chocolate Soufflé

In our family, the combination of chocolate and banana is a big winner, especially in pancakes or cupcakes, so I created this soufflé just for a change. It's really easy to prepare, and also works well with strawberries or raspberries.

Dolce di panettone e miele con frutta grigliata e ricottaPanettone & Honey Pudding with Chargrilled Fruits & Ricotta

This is my Italian version of bread and butter pudding, served with char-grilled fruits and sweetened ricotta cheese. In Italy the ricotta is very creamy and rich, and I just added honey to sweeten it, but in Britain you might like to add a few drops of vanilla extract to give depth of flavour.

Linguine Vongole e Vino BiancoLinguine with Clams and White Wine

I absolutely love this recipe, so much so I would say it’s my favourite in this chapter. I lived on freshly landed seafood when I was a young boy and miss it hugely.  This was, and still is, number one for me. It’s so easy and yet you really feel that you have been spoiled when someone makes it for you. Please be careful when making the sauce and ensure that you do not stir the clams too vigorously...

Brasato di coniglio con liquore al mirto e vino rossoRabbit Braised in Mirto Liqueur and Red Wine

Rabbit has a lovely mild, gamey flavour and firm, meaty texture; if you haven’t tried it, I urge you to do so. Ask your butcher to prepare it for you. If you really don’t fancy rabbit, chicken pieces make a good substitute. Mirto liqueur is often available in Italian delicatessens or online, but if you can’t find it use port or sloe gin instead.
