Dimlama baliq (Stewed fish)
This delicious, finger licking recipe was given me by my friend Mu'tabar, who is also a very good cooking Uzbek housewife. She knows many old recipes, that are prepared in Tashkent (capitol city of Uzbekistan). I just love this recipe, because fish is so tender and juicy, it is soaked with the taste of vegetables, just yummy!!!
500 gr of fish (you can use any fish)
Vegetable oil for frying fish
2 large onions,peeled and sliced thin
3 large carrots,peeled and grated in thin stripes
2 large potatoes, peeled and sliced in thin rounds
4 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
Salt, pepper, ground coriander
70 gr of water
Heat up enough oil for deep frying fish, fry them until golden. Set aside. Now take your deep baking dish(I use glass one) and place sliced potatoes in it. Spread half of onions and half of carrot. Sprinkle some salt. Now place your fried fish on top of the vegetables and cover it with the rest of onions and carrot, put garlic, some salt, spices. Pour water evenly on top. Cover your dish with foil and bake in the oven for 40-50 min or until your carrots are soft.
Serve with fresh chopped coriander and vegetables.
