Black scabbardfish

Black scabbardfish

This deepwater fish is a popular catch at the fish market of Funchal. It may look scary, but it tastes surprisingly tasty and is actually considered a delicacy in Madeira. If you fancy something different, try the 'espada com banana', which is deep-fried black scabbardfish and with grilled bananas on top. Delicious!
