Pasta with Red scorpionfish - italian recipe

Earlier I wrote a recipe for pasta with crabs. Today I will tell you how to cook my husband's favorite dish - pasta with Red scorpionfish. Here they are in the photo - red and dark - ugly, with spiny fins, but very tasty)) 

First you need a Red scorpionfish 500-800 for two portions. That is one big or two smaller fishes. In the store they have cleaned the fish: 

Then you need

  • garlic, 
  • 0.5kg of cherry tomatoes, 
  • 300 ml of white wine, 
  • olive oil, 
  • pasta - tubettini (about 80-100g per person) - you can take a different pasta, such as spaghetti or paccheri. 

Then you need big deep pan, because we won't cook pasta separately but put it directly to sauce. So, fry the garlic until it became golden brown, then remove it from the oil. 

Put fish into a pan and cover it immediately, because there will be splash of oil. 

After 5 minutes,put the tomatoes cut in half 

5 minutes later, pour a little of wine into the pan. You can leave it open. 

Leave the fish to stew until it will be cooked.
And now we make other preparations. Take the rest of the wine and mix it with boiling water in a ratio of 1:2 (or 1:3). This method of cooking in wine gives the finished dish amazing taste. The main thing is not put too much wine and its quality should be good. Bad wine can spoil the whole taste of the dish. 

When the fish is cooked, remove it from the pan and collect all the bones, which remained in the pan. Add wine mixed with water and when it boils, add the pasta. Yes, we do not cook the spaghetti separately but in sauce, because they will absorb a full taste of the sauce, and you just can not break away until eat all))
Add a little of salt (quite a bit, because the sauce will be boiled down and salinity increase).

Yes, I left fish for a photo and removed it later) 

The time necessary to cook spaghetti read on the package. But of course we are preparing them by eye, or rather by taste - as the Italians say, "al dente", which means to the tooth. When spaghetti are ready they are not hard inside, but a little sink in teeth. Then while you put them on a plate and carry on the table, they will reach the desired condition, but will not be overcooked.

Before serving dish, sprinkle with chopped parsley. Parsley can also be added to the spaghetti for 3-5 minutes before finish to cook.

Buon appettito)

Thanks for sharing! It looks too exotic for me (the fish I mean) but you never know, maybe I will try it some day :)
