cappon magro

seafood and vegetable salad

The name may sound like it means 'lean capon' but in fact cappon magro (or capon magro) is an elaborate, labour-intensive salad made of layers of cold salted rock fish, shellfish, sailor's biscuit rubbed in garlic, hard-boiled eggs and vegetables, crowned with oysters and shellfish, served with a garlicky sauce made with anchovies, oil and vinegar.
