Cooking crucian baked in the oven:

Step 1: Prepare the potatoes.

Peel the potatoes and rinse. Remove the eyes. Cut clean potatoes into large pieces. After slicing potatoes, put them dry on a paper towel and take up the preparation of the fish.

Step 2: Prepare the fish.

Clean carp from scales with a knife, remove gills and entrails, carefully cut fins and tail. Cut into portioned pieces is not yet necessary, we will bake the whole fish.
Rub the crucian with salt inside and out, then pour lemon juice and leave to marinate in the refrigerator 15-20 minutes.

Step 3: Prepare the onion.

Having cleaned the onion from the scales, crumble it in half rings. Use a knife soaked in cold water so that the juice does not fly splashing in all directions, and you avoid unnecessary tears.

Step 4: Bake the fish.

Grease a baking sheet with vegetable oil and place crucian on it. Stuff the carcass of the fish with onions, spread the potatoes around, salt and pepper to taste. And in order to form an appetizing crust during cooking, grease everything with vegetable oil on top.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Place a baking tray with fish and potatoes in the oven and bake 30-45 minutesuntil a golden crust appears. As soon as this happens, take out the baked crucian carp and serve.

Step 5: Serve the baked crucian carp.

Serve the finished crucian baked in the oven hot, garnish with herbs, slices of lemon or garlic. As a side dish, use the potatoes that we baked with the fish. At the festive table it is best to serve the whole fish on a large dish.
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- Some recipes recommend making small incisions in the fish so that the small bones are baked and are less noticeable.

- Inside the fish, instead of onions, you can put slices of lemon with herbs.

- Also, crucian carp can be baked in foil with mayonnaise or sour cream.
