PONZA

In ancient times the island Ponza was called Tyrrhenia. Legend says that Ponza is what is left of the lost island of Tyrrhenia. Ponza is said to have been connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land, which sank into the sea with most of the island below the water, with the parts remaining above sea level.

The trip to Ponza from Terracina takes about an hour by the fast ferry. Tickets can be bought at the docks. At Ponza you can also go on excursions by smaller boats around the island. On these trips you can enjoy breathtaking scenery and crystal clear water.

 

Shrimp salad

How about a different spring dish today? It feels good to eat a light meal for lunch, avoiding the pasta once in a while. This is how I make it, but of course you can replace any ingredient for your taste. You’ll need;

  • 400 gram fresh shrimp
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 carrot
  • 4 reddish
  • celery
  • 1/2 orange or lemon
  • parsley
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

You clean the shrimp, put them in boiling water for 3 minutes and give them a cold shower so they cool off the heat. Then you cut the vegetables and season your salad with olive oil, fine cut parsley, orange or lemon juice, salt and pepper. Enjoy!
