New Year’s post – Grilled Adriatic bream

For the last day in the amazing 2017 I prepared an equally amazing recipe that showcases Croatian fresh products and simple delicious cuisine. 2017 was an incredible one for me: I went to Krakow, Poland on a road trip with six of my friends I visited the island of Vis and Hvar where I used…

Oven-baked octopus & potatoes

Croatia has a beautiful and long coastline, from Istra to Dubrovnik, and a countless number of islands. I’ve mentioned the breathtaking nature probably countless times but there is one more segnificant thing – food! Every region stretching from north to south has it’s own book of recipes, ways of preparing their traditional dishes, but there’s…

Roast chicken, potatoes & mushrooms

Since the weekend started and here in Croatia we usually have family dinners on Sunday, I have to share this delicious recipe for a family dinner with all of you wonderful peeps. Tomorrow I’ve invited my brother and his family over for dinner, and since I’m his younger brother, his kids love me. From the…

Grilled sea bream

I have to admit when with my parents, I usually eat more fish, more seafood in general, seems just like most of my friends don’t like it so I don’t tend to prepare it for myself when travelling with them. But after days of wishful thinking and longing for grilled fish I decided to make…

Grilled mackerel & bean salad

For a month now I’ve been living at the seaside, I didn’t move or anything, I’m still enjoying my last vacation as a student. The reason why I haven’t been posting new recipes was because I didn’t have wi-fi or any other way to get on the Internet and even though it was tough and…

Steak & green bean salad

Green beans, since I was a kid, we’ve eaten them in stews most of the time. My mother prepared them regularly every two weeks and I wasn’t a big fan, I didn’t even like it when my grandma made them but I always remember breaking green beans in half with her. She would buy a…

Grilled steak and broccoli

Hey guys! With steaks it is all about grilling them perfectly, whether you like them raw, medium raw or well done. I love organizing barbecues with friend or family. Usually we all get together at my brother’s house where we grill meat in the yard, where we can all play with his kids. Or if with…

Grilled bream and cooked vegetables

It’s said that eating fish at least two to three times a week is absolutely necessary for your health. I don’t eat fish because it’s necessary, I eat it because it’s delicious. There is always fresh fish at the market and there is no excuse not to cook it. Preparation: 10 min        …
