The "bullit de peix" (fish boiled) is one of the most spectacular typical dishes of Ibizan gastronomy. Don't miss these restaurants to taste it.
Whoever visits Ibiza and does not taste this authentic delicatessen is making a big mistake. This typical dish, original of the traditional cuisine of fishermen, is a must if you are on holiday in Ibiza and want to enjoy the most authentic gastronomy of the island.
The dish, although it has variations and each restaurant does so in its own way, is made up of the basic elements: the boiling of fish (which is usually eaten first) accompanied by potatoes with an "alioli" sauce, and a rice later made with the broth obtained from the fish stew.
Although some restaurants reverse the formula (first you eat the rice, sometimes the broth, and then the fish), the explosion of flavors is just as incredible in either case. The "bullit de peix" is the best way to discover the fresh products of Ibiza and the traditional touches of the local gastronomy.
