Why Silver Carp?

Silver carp is a freshwater fish from the carp family. Moreover, neither in terms of taste, nor in terms of benefits for the body, it is in no way inferior to sea fish.

Silver carp is the most suitable for cooking fish a la herring. It has the required meat density and fat content. When compared with other types of fish, the carp, when salted and pickled, begins to creep, the meat of the pelengas acquires a fresh, unpleasant taste. Other types of fish also cannot boast of meeting the expected taste.

Fish in a jar without water

This silver carp herring is distinguished by its special softness and delicate, spicy taste. Take a large fish (up to 2 kg, so that after cleaning the fillet weight is at least 1 kg), onions, water, salt, bay leaf, allspice and black peas, vinegar and vegetable oil.

  1. Brush the fish. Cut off the head and remove all bones without skinning the carcass.
  2. Cut the resulting fillet with skin into slices up to 2 cm thick, put in a bowl. Salt, mix well (but do not crease so as not to damage the fillet), leave for 15–20 minutes.
  3. While the fish is salting, take a few large onions (the bigger the better), peel them and cut them into half rings.
  4. Mix boiled cold water with 6% table vinegar in a 1: 1 ratio. Pour silver carp pieces with this solution, let it brew for another 20 minutes.
  5. Drain the liquid. Fold the fillet pieces into a jar, alternating layers with onion rings. Add peppercorns and bay leaf pieces. Stack tightly, but do not tamp.
  6. Fill the contents of the jar with vegetable oil to the top so that it completely covers the fish and onions.
