Pesto di Pantelleria
Delicious Pesto di Pantelleria with a twist on traditional Italian pesto, using almonds instead of pine nuts and throwing in some capers and smoked swordfish. But our secret is adding some of a special liqueur, Passito di Pantelleria.
Capers are grown in southern Italy, but best quality are on the island of Pantelleria off the Sicilian coast. It's a perpetually windy island, where the olive trees are pruned to a squat form to survive heavy gusts, and the perfect place for caper plants, which grow close to the ground.
Ingredients: Extra virgin olive oil, Italian dried tomatoes, Smoked SWORDFISH, Capers, Italian PINE NUTS, Passito di Pantelleria, NUTMEG.
Usage: Special seasoning for pasta, croutons, seasoned bread, pizzas.
