    Recipe from Croatian island Hvar. There are many ways of making "brodet", this comes from village Vrboska on Hvar. It is better if you use several kinds of fish.

      This is delicious! Who would of thought of using raisins in a fish dish? But, wow, it works great in adding that certain sweetness much like picadello. This recipe's taste is exotic in a sense that it reminds me of all the beautiful places waiting for me to discover with a touch of Turkey, Sicily.and Middle East with Eastern Europe coming in with parsley. I wish I had a whole fish but didn't and used yellow tail filets. Yellow tail or buri has a strong taste much like mackerel and it worked really well here. I would like to try a whole snapper next time. Thank you so much for posting this superb recipe nitko.
