O my beautiful Morone, made to capture
Outstanding fishing prized fish Polpo Mario.
It is among the most valuable and sought fish in our seas. The specimens caught in our area are few, except for very rare exceptions. Like the one that we document in this service: a great "caught" by Moroni took place in Sestri Levante, exclusively for the Octopus Mario. The fish Morone (centrolophus niger), as John recalls Rebora, Genoa university professor and great cooking expert, It is rare and expensive. Years ago it was offered to Pope John Paul II during his visit in Chiavari, to cook, on that occasion was the friend Pony eponymous restaurant Portofino square. Its flesh is white and delicate thanks to the quality of its usual food, made shrimp scampi and the habitat they live, a 500 meters deep. The fish you catch Morone exclusively with longlines and bottom with paranza, It is not so easy to find it in trade; as soon as we find some specimens I have it at home we speak now.
We in the "Octopus" the way we cook:
There are several ways to cook fish morone.
At Octopus Mario and the restaurant to the castles we have tried to meet the tastes and new trends of gourmet.
