Brodet in the Dalmatian way

I love this old recipe, it has been passed down for generations, my husband loves it and says it is perfect, I love it both because of that but also because we have it for multiple meals. I recommend it to you from the bottom of my heart. :)

Preparation steps

  • Clean the fish well, cut it into two parts, shrimp only a little on the tail, fry for about 3 minutes in olive oil, you can roll the fish in flour beforehand, I do this procedure so that the fish does not fall apart, so they passed it on to me and since then so I work too, it works. :)
  • Fry onion in olive oil, add garlic, chopped peeled tomatoes or fresh tomatoes, add fresh parsley leaf, a little rosemary, a little bay leaf, fish and shrimp, pour all with white wine and water, just enough to cover the fish, do not mix but shake a couple times the dish during cooking, add salt or to taste, colorful pepper. Cook for about 45 minutes.


Serve the broth with polenta and white wine :)
