Preparation of pickled silver carp:
Step 1: Clean the fish.First you need to rinse the fish well. You must take some fresh fish! Only in this way will you be sure that the dish will work out well. Then we clean it, decapitate and gut it. In order to clean the fish, it is necessary to cut the dorsal fin, then grab it with a clean cloth and stretch in the direction from the tail to the head. After that, remove the scales with a knife or grater under a gentle stream of water. To gut the fish, make a longitudinal cut from its head to the caudal fin on its abdomen and carefully remove all the insides. The film covering the vertebral bone must be cut lengthwise and the blood cleaned from this bone. After, you need to cut the silver carp into small pieces, about 5 by 8 centimeters in size. Here you have two options for cutting: either cut the fillet and cut into pieces, or just cut the fish across, and then cut each piece along the spine. It is not necessary to remove the bones from the fish (with the exception of the spine), since during the pickling they will become soft. After the fish is sliced, put it in a bowl and sprinkle with spices and salt.
Step 2: Cut the ingredients.We clean and cut the onion into thin rings. The juicier the onion bought, the better. Carrots must be washed, peeled and grated on a coarse grater. We steal onions and carrots into a bowl separate from the fish, add peppercorns, bay leaves and cloves.
Step 3: Pickle the fish.In a glass or enamel dish we lay out fish and vegetables in layers (a layer of vegetables, fish and vegetables again). And then fill our dish with vegetable oil and vinegar. We send the pickled silver carp in the refrigerator for 24 hours. If you cut the fish in large pieces, leave it to marinate for two days. Also, you can safely leave the fish in the refrigerator for three or four days, which will even better affect the taste of the dish.
Step 4: Serve the pickled silver carp.Serve the finished dish is cold. It will look very good both on the festive table and during a family dinner. In addition, pickled silver carp is ideal as a cold appetizer for vodka. Enjoy your meal!
