Grilled Bronzino

Grilled Bronzino 

                         with Pampas herbs

Bronzino is the name for the European bass. It is delicious in any way you cook it. In this recipe we will grill it.


Bronzino whole

Orange 1 each

Sliced Lemon 1 each

Sliced Pampa's herbs 1 tbsp.


Let's start the fire for the grill, them marinate our fish.

Place the fish on the cutting board and cut it all the way to the tail following the belly. Season the inside and stuff it with orange and lemon slices.

At this time your grill is hot and ready to cook the bronzino. Check the temperature of the grill with your hand slightly over the grill and count 7 seconds.

Place the fish on the grill, caramelize the skin, and flip it over. Fish is usually really fast to cook.

I recommend to eat the skin but you can also remove it.

Enjoy it with a glass of Chardonnay!

Monk Fish

With Spice the Sea 

Monk fish is really good if you know how to make it, and most importantly, how to season it.


Monk fish

Flour 1 cup

Spice the Sea 2 tbsp.

Lemon juice 1 each

White wine 1/2 cup

Oil 1/2 cup

Fresh Dill


In a bowl, mix the flower and Spice the Sea. Pass the fish through the flower, making sure that the entire surface is covered with flour.

Heat up a pan, reduce it to medium heat and add oil. When the oil reaches a good temperature and begins to smoke a bit, sear all the sides of the fish.

Add the wine and cover for 5 minutes or until fully cooked.

Finish it with lemon juice and fresh dill.

Watermelon Salad

Pampa's HerbsCatriel MenendezComment

Summer is here and with it comes watermelon! Here is a simple recipe for a summer salad. I really like the combination of flavors in this salad, the sweetnessof the watermelon, the tartness of the green tomatoes and the creaminess of the goat cheese creates the perfect balance and freshness for this weather.


Watermelon in cubes 2 cups

Green tomatoes in cubes 1 cup

Goat Cheese 1/2 cup

Apple Cider Vinegar 1 tbsp.

Olive Oil 2 tbsp.

Pampa's Herbs 2 tbsp.

Optional (mint, zucchini flower)


In a bowl, put the Pampa's herbs and the vinegar, mix well and add the oil. 

In a bigger bowl mix the tomatoes, watermelon and dress them with the mix. 

The goat cheese can be added at this moment, or it can be added last when the salad is already on the plate. It depends on the presentation of the salad.

Finish it with some mint leaves and zuccini flowers.
