Spelt macaroni with swordfish ragu and lemon zest
Swordfish ragu is one of the oldest Sicilian recipes. As early as 2 AD historian Polibio wrote about fishing swordfish in the Sicilian sea and since that time Sicilians have embraced this versatile fish in their cuisine. Sicily has a range of recipes for swordfish with different regions, such as Palermo and Messina, cooking the fish in way that is uniquely their own. The spelt macaroni and swordfish ragu recipe prepares the fish in the same way as its meatier ragu relative. As a result, a sauce is produced that couples perfectly with the spelt macaroni. Spelt wheat is thought to have been originated from the Mediterranean and the Caucasus and was brought across by the Romans. By delving into this traditional dish you will be savouring something ancient, delicious and unique from the Sicilian isles. You won’t regret it!
