Local Recipe – Scorpion “Bourdeto”

This is one of the signature dishes in Corfu & Paxos. We all love this plate, and we have many child memories eating “Bourdeto”

The recipe is for 4 people.

Ingredients

  1. 10 to 12 scorpions cleaned of scales and offal only, leave them with their heads
  2. 1 big Onion chopped into small pieces with a knife
  3. A large soup spoon of sweet red pepper
  4. A pinch of hot red pepper
  5. 100 gr of Olive oil
  6. 100 grams of fresh lemon juice, from fresh-cut lemons!

In an alternative recipe we could use also tomato sauce.

How to do it

  1. Put the finely chopped onion in the saucepan with some oil and let it boil.
  2. Add the large spoonful of red sweet pepper, a pungent hot red pepper, and the rest of the olive oil.
  3. Continue cooking it.
  4. Put a large glass of water
  5. When it boils and is near to stick, we add the fishes and two more glasses of water until the fishes are completely covered.
  6. Allow boiling on a normal fire until it is almost dry from the water.
  7. Put the lemon juice inside.
  8. Wait for another minute and remove it from the fire cause it’s ready.

Hopefully you will enjoy this food as we do! Please share photographs with the result.
