Torta tal-Lampuki 

Being an island encircled by the ocean, it bodes well for the Maltese to utilize fish in an assortment of their dishes. Torta tal-lampuki is a pie made out of the fish known as the ‘mahi-mahi’, or the normal dolphinfish. These fish move past the Maltese islands from the finish of August until around November. The new fish are gotten promptly toward the beginning of the day and are shipped to the fish market in Valletta on non-weekend days.

A few people pick to include bacon and hard-bubbled egg to the sauce, with some going considerably further and including chicken liver or calf minds to the formula. The macaroni is then heated in a baked good case, bringing about a rich and filling pasta dish that leaves everybody requesting more!
