Sicilian Cooking and Recipes

Because of its location, in the middle of the Mediterranean, Sicily was a magnet for seafaring peoples since the dawn of time, and has been ruled, among others, by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, and Spanish, all of whom have left their mark, both in the island's soul and in the cuisine, which is one of Italy's most lavishly elegant and refined.

So imagine my delight when Annita posted a recipe on the forum! It was in Italian, so I've translated it, together with her observations, and here it is.
