A Good Friday tradition in the eastern city of Osijek continued yesterday with fiš paprikaš, or fish stew, handed out to locals and tourists. 

Organised by the City of Osijek, the masters of cauldrons from Slavonia and Baranja cooked 2,000 portions of fiš paprikaš for the people. Over 300 kilograms of fish was used. 

Osijek Deputy Mayors Dragan Vulin and Jasenka Crnković took part in the distribution of the delicious traditional Slavonian holiday delicacy.

Our cauldrons are 70 litres. The slight differences are only in the taste, whether it is saltier or hotter. Each of us has our own secret and our own touch. It is cooked for about 40 minutes, on wood, over a high heat,” said the President of Udruga majstora kotlića of Slavonia and Baranja Davor Tomić.
