Fish stew baked in the oven

This is a very easy recipe to make, and a delicious dish to serve with rice.

Cook Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes


* 1 Big Cyprinus
* 3 kilos small onions for stew or normal ones in slices
* 4 spoonfulls tomatoe paste
* 1 tomatoe juice
* 4 bay leafs
* salt
* pepper red and black
* pepper seed
* pimento
* some water

For garnish:

* 2-3 tomatoes
* chopped parsley
* sliced lemon


We peel and cut the onions in slices if we are using the big ones. To avoid watering eyes we put the onions in a jar with cold water.

Add olive oil to a skillet and brown the onions for a few minutes, we add the tomatoe paste, salt, the peppers, the pimento and we add water. We add some more water if necessary and we leave it on the stove for about 30 to 45 minutes, until the onions are well cooked.

Once the onions are tender we spread them in a pan with all the juice.

On top we add the Cyprinus cut in slices. We add salt and pepper on the fish and we garnish it with tomatoe slices, lemon slices and parsley. We add the bay leafs and we bake it for about one hour at 220°C.

We can serve it with roze wine.

Servings: 4 - 5
