This is one of my top fish meals. It is rich in taste, and also satisfactory for stomach. It is nice full dinner; it must be supported by nice wine. There are many ways of doing this meal (every part of coastal Croatia has its own way), and this is how I’ve learned on island Hvar.


1200 g fish, sea bass or similar; (4x300g)
1000 g potato
300 g tomato
150 g onion
4 cloves garlic
50 g rosemary; (fresh branch)
20 g olives
2 teaspoons oregano
1 cup wine; (white dry)
1 tablespoon salt; (kosher)
1 teaspoon pepper; (black whole)
1/2 cup olive oil

Original recipe makes 4



Clean the fish, don’t remove head, keep it whole. Put some rosemary leaves inside the fish. Peel potato and cut like chips, but about 0,5 to 1 cm thick. Peel onion and garlic. Cut the onion into halves and garlic into 4 pieces. Cut tomato into halves. First lay potato into the casserole pot and than lay fish. Place onion, tomato and olives around fish. Season with salt and pepper. Pour wine over everything, and than olive oil. Place rosemary branch between fish and sprinkle with oregano. Preheat oven to 200°C and put fish to bake about 30 - 40 minutes. You can reduce heat to 180°C in the middle of baking, than heat again 5 minutes before end to 200°C. If you are not sure potato will bake you can cover the casserole pot with aluminum foil, but remove it at least 15 minutes before end to prevent “cooking” the fish.

I made this recipe with Nannagai fillets. So I backed the potato, tomato, garlic, onion, rosemary for 15min first then added the fish, wine and olives. And baked for another 15min. It was absolutely delicious! It was a winner!
