Al Mare Recipes

Capri is a small island located off the Bay of Naples in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Historically a small fishing village, naturally the local seafood characteristically features in its traditional cuisine.

Gianluca's father was an experienced fisherman on the island. These days, in their small family fishing boat, his brother continues the family tradition and catches a range of local seafood including octopus, totani (a local variety of squid), anchovies, scorfano, tuna and the island’s delicacy, a white flesh fish called Pezzogna commonly found in the waters between Capri and Ischia.

The locals have been cooking their abundant supply of seafood for generations to enjoy as stand alone seafood dishes and to combine with pastas, risottos, soups, refreshing salads and vegetables, of which you can select from below to cook in your home.
