Šurlice

Šurlice

The inhabitants of the island of Krk take great pride in their indigenous type of pasta, šurlice. It is not unlike the Istrian fuži, but more elongated and thinner, and is most often served with thick meat gravies or frutti di mare sauces. When a dish is prepared with lamb, as in Baška or, for special occasions, with game, a palatable everyday meal becomes a memorable gastronomic experience. The custom of preparing šurlice in catering establishments has also been preserved in Dobrinj, a charming small town in the interior of the island of Krk.
