Gastro guide


Gastronomy in Dalmatia has grown out of the tradition of natural and healthy Mediterranean foods based on vegetable dishes and olive oil, fish and shellfish, wine, goat and sheep milk cheeses, and fruit, including citrus fruit, maraska (maraschino) cherries, grapes, figs and almonds. The special quality of this cuisine lies in the method by which the dishes are prepared. Vegetables are cooked in very little water, seasoned with olive oil and sprinkled with herbs such as rosemary, sage, basil and marjoram. Fish is prepared as a brudet (fish soup), boiled or charcoal-grilled, while meat prepared under a baking lid acquires a unique flavour. There is a special place in Dalmatian cuisine given to fish prepared on a grill, as a brudet and boiled, but it is also offered salted or as a marinade. Predominant among the spices are laurel and garlic and the indispensable olive oil. Shellfish and crustacean are prepared as a buzara, while the Dalmatian meat speciality is the paĹĄticada (marinated meat stew) with gnocchi. The recipes that follow originate from all parts of Dalmatia, and together form what we customarily refer to as domestic, traditional cuisine.


Buzara mĂŠlange 40 decagrams prawns 40 decagrams mussels 40 decagrams date shells 1 dl olive oil 2 dl white wine 4 cloves garlic Chopped parsley Pepper 1 tbsp breadcrumbs

Wash the prawns, mussels and date shells thoroughly. Pour oil into the pot and add garlic, sautĂŠ until it turns golden brown. Add prawns and sear lightly. Add shellfish and cover the pot until the shellfish open. Add pepper, parsley and wine, mix well and cook 10 minutes. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs when the cooking is almost done.

Place the minced beef and pork in a bowl. Finely dice the bacon, sauté lightly in a saucepan and add chopped onion. Continue sautéing until the onion becomes glassy, and add the mixture to the meat. Add chopped garlic, a little ground nutmeg, some ground cinnamon, crushed cloves, pepper, salt and egg. Mix thoroughly adding water if overly hard.

Now take the heads of sauerkraut, separating the leaves and using a knife to thin out thicker veins on the leaves, or, if they are large, cut them in half to get small arambašići. Add a spoonful of the meat mixture to each sauerkraut leaf and roll the arambašići starting from the base of each leaf, folding the ends together well so that they do not fall apart during cooking. Cover the bottom of a casserole dish with lard and cover with the remaining pickled cabbage leaves and then pack the arambašići tightly over them. Sinj style stuffed sauerkraut rolls

Komiška pogača

Komiža sweet bread Dough for the pogača is prepared in the same manner as bread dough, with the addition of a little soybean oil. The stuffing is prepared by removing the bones from salted pilchards and slicing them into small pieces.

Octopus salad 1 large octopus Onion Parsley Olive oil Vinegar Salt Pepper Capers Light-toned tomatoes Lemon

Sauté onions and tomatoes on olive oil, the dough is divided into two parts. The first part, somewhat larger, is rolled out. Cover it first with the sautéed onions and tomatoes, and then with the salted fish and parsley. Sprinkle lightly with olive oil, cover with the second layer of the dough, folding the lower layer over the top at the edges to prevent the stuffing from coming out. Pierce the top layer with a fork at several places and bake in a baker's oven. Coat it sparingly with olive oil when done.

Wash and clean the octopus thoroughly. Boil it in a covered pot in plenty of water at high heat, and later a low heat until it softens. Remove the gelatinous skin from the boiled octopus and chop into pieces. Garnish with onion, capers, tomato, parsley and sprinkle with olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice. Octopus salad is excellent as an hors d'oeuvre, and can be served as a main dish.

Wash and drain the prepared meat and place it in a suitable dish. Remove the meat from the marinade and drain, if necessary patting it dry. Then use a tapered knife to make small incisions into the meat on all sides. The incisions must be along, not across the veins of the meat. Peel the cloves of garlic and cut 8 in half lengthwise, or leave whole depending on their size. Insert one slice or clove of garlic, stick of bacon and a stick of carrot into each of the incisions. Clean and cut the onion, carrot and celery root into slices. Heat a little oil in a suitable pot. Salt the meat and sear lightly on medium heat to give it a golden brown colour. Remove the meat and pour the oil into the dish you will prepare the pašticada in. Sauté the onion in the oil, add laurel leaves and rosemary as soon as the onion begins to change colour. Braise on medium heat until the water evaporates from the vegetables. Add the seared meat, braise for a minute or two and then add the red wine. You can add the sherry and water right away, enough to cover the meat. Add salt. Cover and braise 5 minutes on 11 kg roast cut (round of veal, lamb or venison) medium heat, then reduce the flame and continue to 3-4 spoons tomato concentrate braise on low heat.

Clean and wash the cuttlefish and slice into small pieces. While cleaning remove the black ink and dissolve it in a small cup of water. Heat oil in a suitable pot and sautĂŠ diced onions. Mix in garlic, parsley and a laurel leaf as soon as the onion begins to change colour. Add the sliced cuttlefish, salt, pepper and stir in a little tomato purĂŠe or tomato concentrate. Cover and cook at medium heat. When you feel that the cuttlefish is done, pour in the white wine (fish, crab or lobster meat stock is better if you have it), and add the rice. Stir and continue cooking until the rice is done. Stir from time to time, adding fish stock if necessary. Stir in the prepared cuttlefish ink a minute before the rice is done. Remove from the flame and set to cool for a few minutes before serving the risotto. Serve hot. It may be garnished with grated cheese.

BraÄ? vitalac is made from thoroughly washed and dried lamb intestines. The offal is washed, dried and cut into as small equally sized pieces as possible. Lung, liver, heart and spleen are placed on the spit in turns. Sprinkle with salt and roast over low heat cinders for about 30 to 45 minutes. Remove the spit from the fire and use a knife to remove the sharp edges from the spit mixture to achieve a cylindrical shape. The roasted offal is wrapped in the gut casing, and then carefully wrapped again in the intestines. Salt again and roast again over wood coals for a further 35 minutes until the intestines acquire a golden brown colour. Remove the spit from the fire, place on a wooden cutting board and carefully remove the spit from the vitalac using the two slices of bread. Slice diagonally so that each piece contains different kinds of offal.
