Sometimes in Italy we saiy that some recipes help to “clean up the mouth” … this has always made me thinking about the sprinkle of lemon that my dad used to add to water after party lunches.
Well, citrus fruit actually have the power to give a sensation of freshness even when they are offered in the most sumptuous desserts, so why not use them to flavor a nice piece of cod?
Said and done: here is a soft baked fish, not at all dry and with a nice crunchy breading with an orange scent of Sicily.
