It is, but that picture looks a lot different than what this Jew eats.
Are you talking about this?:
Remember, I have presented a Polish Jewish dish which, after centuries of cooking, survived in some parts of Poland till today.
This carp is also boiled and I assure you it is extremely sweet, not only because of sugar but also raisins, both of which I add abundantly. Plus almonds and other tasty stuff.
We have another kind of carp in Israel that's called oriental fish and its baked with tomato sauce, onions, pepper and other spices. I prefer that. I remember my grandmother having carp swimming in a pail in the kitchen.
We also bave this variant - called Greek carp.
As for swimming, a pail is inhumane. We sacrifice the whole bath for the fish. Go to have a shower to our neighbours`. :):):):):)
We have just finished oour supper. The salmon fish wasn`t bad, actually, it was as delicious as carp, but I still feel I turned down tradition in some way.
