PhotoHunt: Greasy

This week's theme is "Greasy."

Ha ha, crazy theme this week and kinda tough!

Here in the US, fried seafood is often greasy. But not in Venice. These are moeche, tiny soft-shell crabs, served with grilled polenta (here in the Southern USA, we call it grits). The moeche were fried but not greasy at all, just crisp and crabby.

Alongside the moeche were these grilled vegetables. They had olive oil on them, but weren't greasy. These first two were taken at Trattoria Busa alle Torre on the island of Murano.

And here's a pizza primavera from Trattoria Alvise in Venice. I hate too-greasy pizza but this one was perfect. It was delicious, slightly burned crust and all.

Thanks for visiting and have a happy weekend. You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.

You are making me feel hungry and it is nearly time for bed ;-)

You are making me hungry!! I still have to wait 5 weeks before I go back there : )
Have a great WE!


Interesting post, Annie, especially in light of my reading in such as tourist guide books that Venice is not particularly noted for its food. The ones in your photos look good enough to me though! ;b


I am so hungry now!!! happy weekend.

Hi Annie, yummy grilled veggies and pizza. I've never tried moeche before, so I must put that on my next time list. Is that a nice glass of prosecco or wine I see next to your veggies? :)

Have a great weekend.

what good food you had! yummy! my PH is up too.

Yup - Italians know how to do fried foods right so that they aren't greasy!

Have a great weekend.

Polenta/grits - never made that connection before! I have a recipe for a polenta cake too which I love. Don't think I have ever had grits! Great post for greasy=had a problem with this topic this week. Have a good one! M
