this is a picture of the date mussel Redirect Notice
Vegeta is a croatian dried stock its very good.
Dubrovnick is amazing but the big prob is the tourists In high season between 10 am and 5pm it gets very crowded with up to 7 cruise ships in the harbour. The locals I am sad to say like on Hvar regard them as chickens for plucking. Cavtat is next door and much more civilized.We stay there with friends and if we want to go to Dub its a short boat trip.

I was married by a judge, I should have asked for a jury.

@ Bolas: Fish available on Iberian Peninsula

Good Morning,

1stly, thanks for the lovely photos.

Here are a few names of the fish / shellfish that could correspond to the Rock Fish, you are mentioning:

1) Hurta ( prounounced Urta ): called Banded Bream in English, Pargo Sémola in Portuguese, Sar Royal in French and in Latin, the species is called : Pagrus Auriga. This Rock Fish is found along the Cádiz and Huelva Coast of the Atlantic, in Spain. It is a wonderful white firm fish and highly esteemed in Andalusia.

To my knowledge, this is the only Rock Fish that would match the ones in your fotos.

2) John Dory: This fish is common along the Costa Brava on the northeast coast of Catalonia.

*** note it is called Pez de San Pedro in Spanish and Saint Pierre in French.

3) Date Shell Mussels: a slim mussel which embeds itself on the rocks, is called Dátil de Mar. They are under protection now. I had them years ago before living in Madrid. Very delicate flavor.

Thanks again.
Kind regards.
