Things to know about Riblji Paprikas Recipe

Fish stew is a traditional and popular dish in North Serbia, especially in the Upper Danube area. Firstly the Riblji Paprikas was made among poor fishermen in that area, but as time progressed, its popularity spread among wealthier people from the city.

The saying is that the original fish Stew is made only near the Danube River from Baja, the city in Hungary, to Bogojevo in Serbia. Fish stew is usually made outside in an iron pot (cauldron) from carp fish.

Among the fishermen, there is a saying that the best fish stew is made on fire from Poplar and Willow trees. The white vine is added in Serbia, but in Hungary, the white vine is consumed while eating the stew.
