Blog e Ricette

Delicate, sweet and sour White Condiment with intense notes of  must and syrupy Organic Red Label Balsamic Vinegar with intense notes of must and oak wood are the protagonists of today’s recipe. We have used these two condiments for this recipe made according to Modena’s best Christmas traditions.

Cut the vegetables in the way you like most. The pieces, though, have to be small.

Drain the vegetables and season them well with salt, oil, anchovies, olives and pickles. Leave aside.

Preparation of the codfish:

Cook the codfish fillet ( approx. 150 g.) in a steamer, seasoning the water with sugar, salt, an orange peel, rosemary,  pepper and our Organic Balsamic Vinegar, which is perfect for this cooking technique. This method will make the codfish aromatic and absolutely delicious. Serve the dish and enjoy your aromatic codfish with balsamic vinegar on the bed of vegetables.
