Typical SEA-FOOD COOKING in Friuli Region
  The Friuli region is lucky in the sea-food cooking because its variegated coasts on the Mediterranean Sea provide a great variety of species which are considered typical: the deep sea white fish (Turbot, Mullet, Sole…) and blue fish (Mackerel, Mullet, Pilchard, Anchovy…), the lagoon fish (Sea-Bass, Sea-Bream…), the salted-sweet water fish (Eel, Perch-bass…) without considering Crustaceans and Clams of sea and of lagoon. 
 An other element to keep present by the lovers of fish cooking is the very short distance(about 5o km) which lies from the coasts to the more populous and of the interesting for tourists localities of the region, where therefore can be daily served very fresh fish.
 Rimandiamo alla relativa pagina di questo sito l’elencazione e rappresentazione dettagliata delle specie ittiche più tipiche delle acque salate della regione (vedi).

  As all the maritime regions, the recipes of the sea-food cooking of the Friuli are numerous and often similar to the ones of the other regions overlooking the Adriatic Sea.   We indicate in this page the more interesting dishes both for the local cooking ways and because we talk about fishes, shellfishes and crustaceans typical of the region.
  We remember that in Friuli we have 4 sea-food dishes very typical which here only we name, being everyone of its well presented in a single page (CUCINA section):
- the Brodetto in the three variations of Marano, Grado, Trieste
- the Mixed minute fish fry
- the Risotto of Marano

- the ‘Bisato in speo’ (Eel on the spit)

  Among the other several dishes, we have (underlineing the more traditional ones):

Sarde in saòr (Pilchard with herbs).
Boiled small Octopus salad. 
Boiled Crabs and Female Crabs


Sauté grilled and from Trieste
Razor-shells and Mussels.

in addition to the Brodettos

‘Alla busara’, grilled, boiled, fried
Stewed, baked Mackerels. 
‘Alla mugnaia’ (coated with flour and
fried) and simply fried Sole. 
Backed (also in foil), fried Mullets.

  A great friulian chef in sea-food (among his regular customers also Ernest Hemingway): a good fish dish depends not so much by elaborated cooking methods and sauces as by the experience of the fisher in capturing the fish in the best moment of its growing and by the ability of the cook in conserving and, with caution, exalting the original taste.
  For this reason it is better that the people learns how to know which species of sea-fish are to eat in the various seasons, keeping in mind that the fishes proposed ‘out of season’ do not give good satisfaction on the table, as the fish which, frozen, comes from other parts of the world.
