Brodet, Adriatic fish stew

I am in love with the sea and everything related to it. And seafood is related to it, so I love seafood as well. Pretty simpe equation. You would think I eat plenty of it, but you are wrong. In Belgium fish and other eatable sea beasts can get quite expensive and that in combination with a boyfriend, who rather eats animals without the gills, means that poor Kristina doesn’t get much of it. But I am not in Belgium now, and visiting home comes with a lot of perks.

Zaljubljena sem v morje in vse kar je povezano z njim. Morska hrana je povezana z njim, torej sem zaljubljena v morsko hrano. Precej enostavna enačba. Rekli bi, da je pogosto na mojem krožniku, a se motite. V Belgiji so ribe in druge morske zverinice precej drage in če to združimo še s fantom, ki raje je živali brez škrg, 
pomeni da uboga Kristina rib ne vidi pogosto. Ampak trenutno nisem v Belgiji in počitnice doma pridejo v paketu s številnimi ugodnostmi.

I mentioned a lot of family members in my last posts, well here is another one. My uncle is a fisherman and together with my aunt they run a fish shop, so fresh fish and seafood are always on hand.
There is this fish stew that my aunt always makes for family gatherings and I was craving it for a while. Yesterday my mother called me and, like she was reading my mind, asked if I feel like having that for lunch. Amm, yes please!

V mojih zadnjih objavah sem omenila kar nekaj družinskih članov, no tu je še eden. Moj stric je ribič in skupaj s teto imata ribarnico, kar pomeni da so sveže ribe na dosegu roke. Že nekaj časa sanjam o brodetu (ribji obari), ki ga teta včasih pripravi za družinska srečanja. In, kot da bi mi brala misli, me včeraj mama vpraša, če bi imela brodet za kosilo. Ja, prosim! Brodet, najboljša ribja juha na svetu.

Enjoy the goodies!
