PREPARATION

Prepare a fish broth by simmering 1 liter of water with celery, carrot, onion, parsley stalks, bay leaf, wine, lemon juice, salt, and black peppercorns for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, skin the sole, fillet it, and cut it into diagonal strips.

Once the broth is ready, remove it from the heat and add the fish.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a garlic clove in a saucepan. Add the mussels and cook them until they open.

Sear the bell peppers over high heat, peel them, and cut them into strips.

Remove the seeds from the tomatoes and roughly chop them.

Cook the orecchiette in boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and cool under cold water.

Place the pasta in a bowl rubbed with a garlic clove. Add the bell pepper strips, fish fillets, mussels, tomato pulp, olives, a generous amount of chopped parsley, salt, pepper, and a splash of olive oil.

Allow the pasta to marinate for 2 hours before serving.
