Steaming salmon with fresh herbs: One of the delights of living and eating in Italy is that the Italians always take an opportunity to forage for their own food. So it should have come as no surprise to receive a whole, fresh salmon from Enzo’s cousin, Antonio.
The first thing we did when we got home was to take a sharp knife to the salmon before we could even begin to prepare our steaming salmon with fresh herbs.
