How to prepare the brotula

Brotula or Mastella in Potatoes and Ginger Crust Ingredients:

  • For 4 people:
  • 4 fillets of Brotula or Mostella
  • 5 or 6 medium potatoes
  • garlic and Mediterranean herbs to taste
  • a handful of chopped olives without stone
  • fresh root ginger, 2 cm in length

Boil the potatoes until cooked but not completely soft; when they cool down - peel and slice thinly. Don't worry too much if some slices fall apart - any consistency is fine for the potato crust.

Brush an oven baking dish with a little olive oil (use a dish with high sides), sprinkle with chopped herbs and cover with potatoes.
