The codfish pancakes with Tomatoes of Pachino PGI are a delicious “finger food”. The codfish is replacing the baby sardines or whitebait (in dialect “nunnata” or “sarduzza”). This type of fish is caught only in the first months of the year and is, therefore, difficult to find. Today we combine the fish with the tasty Tomato of Pachino PGI.
