This is the classic summer dish for a light convivial lunch or dinner. Made the evening before is even more tasty because the flavors blend together better. Brown rice is more digestible and keeps all nutrients intact. In addition, it keeps its fragrance and its crisp grains the next day.

Costa d’Amalfi Rosato 2022, by Marisa Cuomo, is our choice for its mineral closure with nuances of aromatic herbs from the Mediterranean maquis. The sip is fresh, precise, perfectly balanced, with a finish of great flavor. For the full review click here.
