Loved the black spagheti


Reviewing this eight years later I had forgotten how good the black spaghetti was.

This was very nice but unfortunately I reduced the sauce too much.

Marinate for 24 hours

This is my version of Espada vinho e alhos (Fish with wine and garlic). We don't drink white wine and had a gifted bottle sitting in the fridge awaiting a recipe idea. It would easily serve more people by just adding more fish.

I've added the fennel as it goes so well with fish (and garlic). Our parsley had yet to grow but we have a lawn of chives, hence the switch. it should be great with pasta. Pasta negra should make a great contrast to the finished dish if I can find some.
