Polenta e Missoltino, chervil and raspberry vinaigrette

€ 16,00

The missoltini are small shads from the lake that are put in salt and dried for a few days. After that, the fishes are moved into large containers interspersed by laurel leaves. It derives, therefore, a strong, salty taste. The origins of the name "missoltino" are different and conflicting. The first legend says that the name "missoltino" comes from "missolte", the name of the containers used to preserve fish. Another legend says that Miss Holdin, a Swedish-born tourist, taught the anglers of Lake Como a new fish preservation technique, which prolongs the time of product deterioration. Today missoltini are served laid on a slice of polenta with olive oil, vinegar and parsley.

Once finished, pour the fillets on the rice, including the butter used to fry the dish. Complete the dish with grated Parmesan cheese. In the Tremezzina area, Varenna, Lecco, Gravedona and mostly all the upper lake, it is prepared with the classic creamy risotto.
