Fish With Endive

Ingredients

1 kg Fresh sardines or fresh anchovies
2 kg White inner endive leaves

Preparation

1
Ms. Sacerdoti's remarks: This dish is thought to be a speciality of Roman Jews. Roman Jewish cooking characteristically combined fish or meat with vegetables in a single dish. Italian Jewish cooking is as regional as Italian cooking. If you cannot find anchovies and do not like sardines, try it with fillets of sole. i have noted a number of recipes where sole is used for a more refined version, and sardines prepared by those who could not afford the more expensive fish.
