Nikica Brekala’s recipe: fish broth

If you want to conjure up a piece of sea on a plate during those summer days, you can make a fish broth. They do great food at Delfin Fish Market in the middle of Kranj, so we went there for a recipe. Katarina in Nikica Brekalowho had been running a fish restaurant with a fish market for fifteen years, were happy to dictate the recipe to us, while Dalmatian music resounded in the background.

For 4-6 people:

1.5-2 kg of mixed fish (shark, Adriatic grouper, monkfish, Adriatic hake…)
300g onions
1 bay leaf
3 cloves of garlic
2 dl of white wine
3 dl homemade tomato sauce
light fish background
1 hot pepper
2-3 tablespoons of wine vinegar
salt pepper
a little oil

The best companion will be a white wine with body, pleasant freshness, such as chardonnay, pinot gris, ripe malvasia or full dry rosé, recommends sommelier Mira Šemić. If you stick to the Dalmatian tradition, the broth will be nicely accompanied by a red wine bevanda.
