The Fritto misto is a traditional Italian dish consisting of a combination of crispy deep fried products. The appetizer is very popular in the local restaurants. There are several varieties of this dish:
The vegetable version may include cauliflower florets, zucchini slices, mushrooms, onion rings, asparagus spears and artichokes. The Fritto misto di mare usually consists of shrimps, prawns, squids, sardines, cod, haddock, monkfish, mussels and king scallops. The perfect version for the meat lovers may include veal, beef, calf livers and lungs, sausages and even hog brains.
The ingredients are marinated in a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic cloves and lemon juice for about fifteen minutes. The marinated products are dipped in batter made of flour and water and fryed in a large wok or pot with vegetable oil.
The fritto misto is seasoned with salt and ground pepper and served with lemon wedges and any sauce, such as aïoli (garlic mayonnaise) or marinara sauce (tomatoes, garlic, aromatic herbs and onions).
