so I won a fish..

and a big one too, a 7.5kg red snapper.

In the winter time the local fishermen do a lottery, the tickets are generally €2 each. It was the first time I had bought one!

Not having a big enough oven to cook it Carnayo restaurant kindly undertook the job and we do like any excuse for a party, it was also the owners 40th birthday so a good reason to celebrate. Carpaccio, pate, soup and baked in the oven with rice, olives, capers and tomato were the inventive and delicious dishes we were treated to, thank you Spiro and Yorgos. Well worth the €2 ticket.
