Mussels Buzara Recipe

Friday, September 29, 2017

The first time I tasted Mussels Buzara was on a trip to Montenegro during our honeymoon. It’s a common and popular dish in coastal Croatia and the rest of the Dalmatian region, including Montenegro. The term “buzara” means “stew” in Croatia.

Mussels Buzara is very easy to prepare, with only a few ingredients found even on local Philippine grocery stores. The key to a tasty buzara is to get the right ingredients and the freshest seafood. If mussels are hard to find, you can substitute shrimp or clams. I normally use mussels because I can easily find them in my local supermarket. In addition, mussels are cheaper than clams and easier to eat than shrimp.
