One of the dishes that sums up the fishing past of the island of Hvar is gregada. This dish, most similar to a thick fish soup with potatoes and without tomatoes, is probably the oldest way of preparing fish in Dalmatia. Although the most popular gregada consists of gilthead bream, red scorpionfish and monkfish, one can use any fresh white fish. Shellfish and crab are added to the white fish so gregada from a folk dish has become an exclusive delicacy that one should not miss tasting when visiting the island. It is very easy to prepare and extremely tasty, and should be allowed to stand for a short time and then serve hot.
