Seafood in Sicily

August 29, 2006

We went out to eat for a freind’s birthday and I just had to photograph some of the seafood (even though I don’t eat it myself)! I tasted one of the little fried fish but the flavor was too strong for me. I couldn’t bring myself to even try the deep-fried baby octupus.

I’ve tasted it before and the flavor is good but I don’t like the texture of octupus or squid. So I didn’t feel the need to taste it again!

Next is a photo of some Paella. I didn’t even know that they made Paella in Sicily but two people who ordered it and really enjoyed it!

I didn’t even try the Paella when I was in Spain so I certainly didn’t try it here. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m not a big seafood eater.

That damn lobster was staring right at me!

And finally, my favorite. The pizza. Without seafood.

This wasn’t actually my pizza but I think I’ll order it next time. My pizza had grilled zucchini, corn and cherry tomatoes and it was also very good!

We went out for pizza the other night and this was what I ate. It was divided into four sections with different toppings: Porcini mushroom cream, black olive paste, four cheeses, and bruschetta. YUM!

Yesterday we went on a pottery buying, beach bumming, photo-taking road trip around the island. We made stops in Patti (at the Caleca factory store), Capo D’orlando, Santo Stefano di Camastra and Cefalu’. It was a fun day and the weather was really nice, not too hot. We lucked out with traffic, it seemed like we were the only car on the freeways most of the day.

This is the beach where we spent the Fourth of July. The water was beautiful and we swam out to the rocks which were good for climbing and jumping.
