Marinated Merluzzi - Whiting ___

Marinated Merluzzi - Whiting


For the Merluzzi:

  • 2 pounds cleaned merluzzi - whiting
  • all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 0.5 cup red wine vinegar
  • olive oil for frying
  • salt


Tap dry the Merluzzi with paper towels

 Dip the Merluzzi in flour

Fry them in hot oil. Once the flour turns deep golden... they are done.

Let the merluzzi cool off.

In a small bowl, put 1/2 cup of wine vinegar, fresh chopped mint and fresh chopped garlic.

Pour the vinegar over the Merluzzi, cover and store in the refrigerator for 24 hours. From time to time turn them so that the vinegar will be absorbed evenly by all the Merluzzi.

Serve cold.
