Every year my family has a beach trip in August,this year will be the 30th year. It began as a fish fry,but now everyone brings whatever they want to eat, I'm already thinking about what I'll take.
I saw this recipe and thought it would be something different and tasty. By August,I'll have lots of zucchini tomatoes and basil in the garden,I didn't plant eggplant this year. I added anchovies to the original recipe since I love them.
I'll serve this with pita wedges.
