Recipe: Grilled Achiote-Rubbed Red Snapper

Achiote-Rubbed Red Snapper If you’re looking to spice up your grilling repertoire, this vividly hued red snapper dish from Nicholas Farina won’t disappoint. Farina rubs the snapper’s firm flesh with achiote paste, a lively blend of annatto seed, vinegar, garlic, and spices that once belonged to the ancient Mayans. It then turns smoky-sweet on the grill, playing the perfect foil to its spicy marinade. Flounced by a colorful sauté of the season’s best vegetables, it’s best served family style, with lots of forks for digging in.

Eat this Word: Culatello

Culatello WHAT? Hamming it up. Just about everyone knows that Parma is famous for its raw, cured ham called prosciutto di Parma. But real pork-product purists prefer the region’s rarer and more delectable culatello. The best, most traditional culatello is labeled with the D.O.P. “Culatello di Zibello,” and it is made according to strict regulations enforced by the Consorzio del Culatello di Zibello in and around the town of Zibello, about 20 miles outside of Parma. Only the large muscles of the pigs’s hind legs and inner thigh, off the bone, are used (culatello means “little backside”). The meat is cured with salt, seasoned with a mixture of black pepper, wine, and herbs, and aged for a minimum of 12 months before it is sold.
