PIPIS WITH BACON, RISONI, PEAS & WHITE WINE
COOKBOOK: Mag Recipe
Pipis are the craze at this moment!
And so they should be, they are delicious!
A kilo cost me AU$10 at the markets, that’s pretty impressive.
Restaurants are serving them as entrees and mains and so they should! They charge a small fortune for a dish that is delicious and makes them good money!
I think the pipis are much nicer than a mussel or clam. Very easy to eat and extremely flavoursome.
I made this dish on a Sunday for family dinner and I think everyone went for seconds and thirds. My extremely fussy seafood eater (my youngest daughter) absolutely loved it!
RECIPE: Super easy to follow and make. In no time you will have a delicious meal to serve.
A definite must make recipe!
