This is a traditional dish of Gallipoli and it can be found during the festivals where you can find the so- called Scapecieri.


  • 1kg of small fishes called Pupiddi
  • grated bread
  • vinegar
  • saffron
  • extravirgin olive oil

Clean the fish and fry them in olive oil.

Put it in the grated bread and let them marinate in vinegar in which the saffron has been dissolved.

In the home- made scapece often the saffron is substituted by the garlic and mint crushed.
