Day 44: Croatia and Slavonski fiš paprikaš

Good evening, Raffies!

Today was another sunny day and we went exploring the beautiful town of Delft.
Dinner today took us to Croatia with some nice Slavonski fiš paprikaš.

This is a typical dish for the region of Slavonia, one of the historic regions of Croatia. This regions is rich in lakes and, therefore, fresh water fish. Thus, is tonight’s dish a soup with fresh water fish – I have used trout and catfish – and a lot of paprika, which gives it its red colour.


1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 onion, thinly chopped

1 tbsp sweet paprika powder

1 tbsp hot paprika powder

1 tbsp tomato paste


600 g trout filets, cleaned and cut

1/4 cup white wine

1 chili pepper

300 g noodles

Heat the oil in a large pot and add the onions. Sauté them until soft and translucent. Add the sweet and hot paprika and the tomato puree. Stir and pour in approximately 4 cups of water. Season with salt and pepper and add the fish.

Bring to a boil and then simmer for 45 minutes. Now add the wine, the noodles and chili, stir and let simmer for 10 more minutes.

I have also added some potato, as you can find in some recipes, and I was very satisfied with the result. The soup was warm and delicious.

Have a wonderful evening!
