  • Pesce a la Padella
    Recipe contributed by my Mom Lina Parente
    • 2 pounds of smelts
    • 2 cups bread crumbs
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 cup vinegar
    • 1 cup mint leaves
    • 1 can tomato sauce
    • 3 tablespoons oil
    • 2 cloves garlic (garlic salt may be substituted)
    Debone smelts. In a 13 x 9 pan you will layer these ingredients in the following order. 1 tablespoon oil, 1 pound of smelts, 1 cup of bread crumbs, a handful of mint leaves, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/16 cup of vinegar, and 1/2 can of tomato sauce. Repeat the process so you have a second layer of oil, smelts, bread crumbs, mint leaves, salt, vinegar, and tomato sauce. Spread the last tablespoon of oil. Place pan in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes. The pesce a la padella will be done when the top reaches a golden brown.
