How to cook "Carp stuffed with cabbage and caviar"
We clean the fish from scales, the head can be cut off, if you decide to leave it, remove the gills. Then we cut the carp not along the belly, but along the back. And through this cut we remove the insides. We wash the fish well, dry it with a paper towel and rub it with a mixture of salt and fish spices, sprinkle with lemon juice. Peel the onion, chop finely and fry in vegetable oil until light golden brown. Add sauerkraut to the onion and simmer until almost cooked. Now let's add caviar, freed from films, to the cabbage. Add ground pepper, salt if necessary. Fry everything together until the caviar completely changes color. Stuff the fish with the prepared filling. Cover the baking sheet with foil. Lubricate it with vegetable oil. We spread the fish on a baking sheet. Lubricate the stuffed carp with either vegetable oil, or sour cream, or mayonnaise. We bake for about 1.5 hours at 180 degrees.
