I have eaten turkey only once in my life. It was disgusting, it smelled like fish

If one doesn't know how to prepare turkey, you get a fish

Is there any way to cook this fish so it's actually eatable?

No. Carp is just crap misspelled. It's a truly disgusting fish, even worse than catfish.

All carp bashers, you are deeply biased because you probably tried the fish from polluted rivers or lakes in your own countries and you imagine Polish carp is equally bad.

You are wrong. Polish carp is much better than the fish in your polluted countries.

Actually, it is the same price as salmon in Polish shops.

If I have a choice, I always choose carp, though salmon is OK too.

Carp Jewish style is delicious:
True Poles are proud of their carp!:

Thank God cows don’t bathe or we would really be in trouble. There's a lot to wash there.

They are just jealous that even our carp is good. Some people are afraid of sampling local cuisine, I even tried some alligator meat in Louisiana once, although I would never have Rocky Mountain oysters, some parts are just inedible but I heard they are prized in Spain "criadillas" huevos del toro. Poor cow.

and you two, if you don't like it, don't eat it... no whining...

exactly. It is our tradition to eat carp for Xmas and we like it, point. What is YOUR problem with carp. Why do you get so excited about what we eat and why?

But hey, quoting former French president, Jacques Chirac "One cannot trust people whose cuisine is so bad".

If that fails we can always make a fridge look like a cow, short of lovely glasses of course.

I wouldn't even feed carp to a horse. I saw many of them in Carrefour, all with nowhere to swim and stuck in a vat of water, waiting to be chopped up. It's such a strange choice. Does this fish have any religious significance? Obviously, a fish generally is a symbol of Christianity but the carp surely didn't pip the others to the post.

We had a team night out yesterday and my British colleagues just LOVED karp w galarecie, ha!

They didn't tell you that they switched the dish to lemon sole at the last minute, did they? ;) Now that's a real fish.

It's oily and tastes bland does carp.

They did say again today that karp w galarecie was REALLY GOOD....

They probably said it in the interests of cultural relations. Carp, for me, is about as bad as it gets and I love fish. All that sofy jelly stuff too, hmm...

Not true about the biased part. The only carp I've eaten-or ever will eat-was on my first Wigilia in Poland. I ate, or at least tried, it baked, fried and in aspic. It was and always will be disgusting.

Fortunately my Polish fiancee doesn't like it either, so when I visit her in Germany we'll have salmon, prawns, and other edible dishes, but not crap-oops, I mean carp.

Spot on, Scottie. There is simply no comparison between seafood and carp. Different league entirely!

I mean damn.. I just can't get over somebody eating it. What the hell did taste like? Describe it, please.

that is fine scottie.
Still, we don't care what you think and say and we will have the traditional karp for Christmas :)

That's fine with me since I won't be there. After all, to each his own. But I don't ever want to be at the same dinner table with any kind of carp on it, and it's never going to happen in my house. If you like it, enjoy it. I don't.

End of my rants, at least about carp.
