In Poland I don't have a trusted place where I can buy fresh fish and seafood. Sometimes I buy some, but it is always a crapshoot. In Spain, close to our house there was a market with a big fish sector. I was delighted. This market doesn't resemble the bazars which we know from a few years ago in Poland. It was an interesting structure and clean and nice with a family atmosphere inside. During our second visit the salesmen recognised us and said "hola!" You could get vertigo from the wealth of products, and we didn't know what we should buy first. The best thing was the fact that whatever you chose it was fresh and yummy and tomorrow you could come back and buy something new. It was sweet that the salesman always cleaned the fish which we chose. We needed only to fry or bake them. For the first dinner we prepared seafood in the Spanish style. For the next one we chose sole – one of my favourite fish. The salesman advised us not to overcomplicate things with the ingredients, and to fry them only with some butter, parsley and lemon.
I took the advice and served the fish fried with fresh salad, artichokes and a baguette. You can make it in the same way or prepare your own dish. The devil is in only one detail – you need to have really fresh fish.
