Brodetto or brudet is a dinnertime staple up and down the coast. You can use any type of fish but it's a great way to prepare stronger-flavoured fish such as grouper or tuna. Avoid thin filets and don't be afraid to mix fish.


1 kg. mixed fish
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
4 large cloves garlic, minced
1 cup tomato purée mixed with 1/2 cup water
2 tblsp wine vinegar
1 tblsp Vegeta*
2 tblsp chopped parsley
salt & pepper to taste

  • Cut fish into equal size chunks and flour lightly.
  • Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and quickly fry the fish on all sides.
  • Remove the fish and reduce the heat to medium.
  • Add the onion and fry until soft.
  • Add the tomato mixture and the garlic and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the vinegar mixture, the fish, Vegeta and parsley and cook over medium heat without stirring until the fish is done (about 10 minutes).

Serve with chunks of polenta.
