Fish, The Family Dish
The mediterranean is no longer full of fish and finally local fishermen have been stopped from discriminately putting out nets and hauling in greedily whatever is on the sea floor. Amateur fishermen are no longer allowed to lay nets and the fish that are caught must be a certain weight and in season.
There were always laws but mostly no-one took any notice of them.
I hope it's not too late to save what fish is left in the med.
Fortunately we have a fisherman in the family
He doesn't often go out but when he does he will bring home supper, for us and the rest of the family
Fish must be eaten 'so they say' with some sort of greens. If we don't have a lettuce salad or some boiled greens then these big watery squash are just as welcome. The seeds are discarded, in fact I got told off for not removing them before serving. The squash is covered in olive oil, lemon juice and oregano
This is a very good catch. I don't know what they are but a couple of them are small tuna. Enough to feed four families
