Hvarska Gregada is Croatian fish & potato stew from the island of Hvar is definitely a “vintage” dish of Dalmatian cuisine .

This simple fish stew with potatoes is said to be the oldest way of preparing fish in Dalmatia and was probably brought to the area by Greek settlers more than 2000 years ago, although potatoes are a local modification because they were introduced considerably later.
