METHOD

"Wedded" soup flavoured with seaweed
Place the seaweed in infusion, separately, in the fish stock and in the meat stock for about 2 hours. Combine the two stocks after filtering them.
Meanwhile, scald the vegetables and cool them in water and ice. Drain thoroughly and cut them. Gently fry the spring onion chopped with extra virgin olive oil. When golden, add the vegetables and fry for about 5 minutes. Add all the stock and leave to cook for 30 minutes. Leave to rest for 4 hours and filter again.

Lettuce roll
Boil the whole lettuce, leave to cool in water and ice and drain on a cloth. Prepare the filling for the roll, placing the bread, capers, pitted and chopped olives, herrings cut into pieces and chopped parsley in a bowl. Mix to obtain a compact consistency. Take the drained lettuce and cut it into quarters to make rolls with the previously prepared filling. Place the rolls on a baking tray greased with extra virgin olive oil and complete with the grating of Grana Padano. Cook in the oven at 180 °C for about 10 minutes.

Cod tripe cutlets
Spread the cod tripes on a work surface, cover with the pine nuts, sultanas, chopped garlic, Pecorino and parsley leaves. Add salt and pepper. Roll up the tripes to form a cutlet and tie them with kitchen string.
Gently fry a clove of garlic in a terracotta pan with extra virgin oil, removing it as soon as it turns golden. Add the cutlets and cover the pot. Cook on a very low heat for about 10 minutes, turning the cod occasionally. When cooked, cool and cut the cutlets into two parts. Wrap each one in bacon and sear in a pan greased with extra virgin oil.

Savoy cabbage and black broccoli quenelle
Toss the cabbage and broccoli in a pan with the extra virgin oil. When cooked, chop everything.

Place the cutlets in a bowl, with the salt cod, the cabbage and broccoli quenelle and the lettuce roll. Cover three quarters with the stock.
