This dish has its origins in Tossa De Mar, a small community in the Costa Brava Region of Spain. Fisherman who needed to stay at sea for several days would prepare this dish with the leftover pieces and parts of the fish from their catch.
The dishes Spanish name (Cim I Tomba) refers to the technique used to make the stew (parts tossed together). We tried it in a small traditional restaurants with beautiful views of the water after a day exploring this beautiful coastal town.
Everything tastes better with a water view – but you can also enjoy it while dreaming of your own visit to Tossa De Mar, Spain.
