Today lets have some baked fish that will simply tantalize your taste buds. This is not a hard recipe as almost all of Windows to Russia recipes are simple. I found this recipe that was labeled several times as “Moscow Style Baked Fish!” I have made this style of fish many times and it is based after a French recipe that I use to follow… (Regardless it is plain – Yummy)
* 800 grams of boneless fish fillets
* 10 ea mushrooms, canned or boiled (sliced and not 10 cans)
* 2 ea medium hard boiled eggs (sliced)
* 2 ea medium onions (chopped)
* 50 g butter (broke up into small chunks)
* 7 ea peeled potatoes (diced)
* 1-1/2 cup sour cream (25 plus %)
* 1/2 cup shredded cheese (white or yellow – your choice)
* salt and pepper to taste (I use fresh garlic also)
In a skillet at high heat fry the fish fillets until seared or sealed to hold juices in, on each side. (turn twice but do not cook all the way)
While frying the fish have a greased baking pan ready as the oven is being preheated to 300 degrees F.
Then place the seared fish slices in the center of the greased baking pan. Then take the diced onions and fry in the same fish skillet – until golden brown brown.
While the onions are frying take raw diced potatoes and cover the fish slices, to fill the rest of the empty pan and then apply the cooked onions on top the potatoes and fish.
Put the butter in little chunks, then the egg slices and sliced mushrooms on top of everything. (you could slice up some fresh garlic and apply at this time.)
Cover with sour cream and shredded cheese. (bury the other ingredients.)
Salt and Pepper to taste! (some may salt and pepper twice – once after the potatoes and then at the last step)
Bake in the oven until done. (preheat 300 degrees F. and bake for 20 to 30 minutes. in center rack of oven. Keep an eye on the top of dish and pull before it burns.)
Let cool a few minutes and then get ready to eat! (Yummy)
Notes: If you use a clear baking dish then that helps to keep an eye on the bottom burning. Notice that Russian dishes have an abundance of sour cream in them!
Windows to Russia!
