Montenegro 2001

Typical Montenegrin cuisine!

There are many delicious fish dishes near bodies of water, for example at Lake Skadar. The fish is prepared together with fruit or vegetables. Frying or baking the fish is common. But there are also unusual-sounding dishes such as eel on a stick.

In the mountains of Montenegro, people like to eat hearty. There is a lot of cheese and meat. Fruits and vegetables are not so easy to grow at high altitudes and are therefore less likely to be served. Mountain dishes such as kacamak are famous. It’s polenta with potatoes and a certain cheese.
