Following a walking tour in Porec, we arrive by boat in Limski Canal where we meet up with Emil, who farms fresh shells here every day.
Limski Canal’s king, Emil Sošić, takes us on a boat tour and pulls in fresh oysters.
Opening the oysters caught moments ago.
Oysters caught a minute ago in the Limski Canal.
Emil prepares the oysters simply with a squeeze of lemon. Champagne adds the final touch.
Passing through a small spacio, or fisherman’s hangout spot after the boat ride from Limski to Rovinj. Just a quick snack in this traditional locale and we’re off to lunch.
Seaside home of a local fisherman in Rovinj, where he welcomes us and prepares for us a multi-course lunch based on the daily catch.
First is fresh fish carpaccio marinated in local olive oil.
Next, fillets of small fish. Completely simple and totally perfect with a glass of Malvazija which is presented to us by our local winemaker from Piquentum winery.

A rare “serious” moment before we’re off for a walking tour of Rovinj.
