Bullit de peix in Mallorca is not as typical as in neighbouring Ibiza. It is a traditional fish stew that has its origins in the Balearic Islands, but particularly on the island of Ibiza. It is a popular dish throughout the region and reflects the local cuisine and flavours.
The dish usually consists of a variety of fish and seafood, such as rockfish, hake, monkfish and sometimes even lobster or shrimp. The fish is usually cooked with potatoes, vegetables (such as peppers, onions and tomatoes) and aromatic herbs and spices, such as saffron, garlic and parsley. The ingredients are simmered together to create a flavourful broth that imbues the fish and vegetables with a rich flavour.
