Turbot fillet rolled and stuffed with salmon and broccoli (Arrostino di rombo)
Our original home cooking
We are used to do meat roast but look here: a fish roast made with a turbot fillet enough big to be rolled up. In fact I discovered this fish fillet rolls up very well. Inside salmon into thin slices and broccoli stew. The result is a really tasty dish, worthy of a great lunch or a gourmet dinner.

In fact I realized this recipe the first time for Christmas Eve dinner some years ago. I served assorted canapes with seafood matched with pomegranate cocktail before my guest sat at the table. Then lobster linguine. My second course was this fantastic turbot dish accompanied with seasonal green salad and olive bread. I closed my dinner with handmade panettone. I surprised all my guest!

What's the right wine “Turbot fillet rolled”?
My husband and I prefer Sauvignon dell'Alto Adige (white wine from Trentino-Alto Adige - Italy) with this turbot recipe. On the contrary when I realized my recipe for the first time on the occasion of Christmas Eve dinner we began serving pomegranade cocktail and then we matched a very special sparkling wine: Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene Spumante (the most famous bubbles from Veneto in Italy).
