Description: "Lean capon." An elaborate salad from Liguria of at least a dozen types of poached fish, hard boiled eggs, artichokes, sea biscuits (US: crackers) called galleta and cooked vegetables topped with oysters and lobster. The one thing it does not have is capon! The whole thing is piled into a dome and garnished with an anchovy and garlic sauce. It is sometimes served before Christmas, the real capon itself being served on that day.
