Missulten or Misultin are a typical culinary specialty of Lake Como, especially of Tremezzina. They are called missoltini in Italian and misultitt in Como dialect. Their preparation is quite complex: they are agons, fish from the lake fished exclusively between June and July, deprived of the entrails, rubbed with salt and deposited in a muffler, still with salt. After a couple of days, they are rinsed and strung in a string, and then left to dry in the open air for a few days. The fish are then placed in a tin (misolta, originally made of wood), together with bay leaves.
