Pesceuovo Fishegg

I have a funny story today.

The story of the Pesceuovo or Fishegg.

This recipe originated from the Sicilian east coast, where I was born and grew up.

The legend says that when the sicilian fishermen came back from fishing without any catch, they used to say to their wives: Stasera Pesceuovo! (this evening, Fish-egg ! Meaning: eggs as fish)!

I like it so much, it is like an omelette with the shape of fish.

Here follow the recipe.

You can find the video recipe in my Instagram page, my profile, highlights or in my Youtube channel.




Basil leaves

Grated Parmesan

Plain Bread crumbs



Extra virgin Olive oil

For the filling

Ham and cheese


  1. Place in a bowl eggs, parsley, basil, grated parmesan , breadcrumbs, garlic and salt and start mixing until you obtain a creamy mixture.

  2. In a frying pan, place the extra virgin oil and when the oil is very hot, place the mixture, spreading it around all the pan.

  3. Cook it very slowly, adding the ham and cheese . Fold it.

  4. Put in a plate, slice and serve!

Buon Appetito
