PEIX SEC, FORMENTERA

AIR-DRIED AND OLIVE OIL PRESERVED FISH

There is an ancient tradition which has prevailed in Formentera and that cannot be found on any of the other islands. We are talking about “peix sec”, a dried fish. At ES REBOST we wanted to revive this product, which is made of a rather cartilaginous local fish. Its preparation consists of an elaborate process. First, the fish has to be kept for a specific amount of time in brine. Then, it is hung in the sun, somewhere within reach of a sea breeze. Once it is dried, it is toasted, sliced and…. finally is ready to eat!
