“Cavolo” (cà·vo·lo, the stress on the “a”) i.e. cabbage is a common and healthy ingredient in many recipes of the Italian cuisine. It is included in the cancer prevention diet, and despite the bad smell it releases, due to the presence of sulphur compounds, it’s employed as a side dish, in potages, in vegetable pies and so forth.
A few days ago, at my local fishmonger, I saw some Mantis shrimp (known also as Squilla Mantis, a marine crustacean typical in Mediterranean waters). I never cooked them but, attracted by the promotional price, I bought them.
