Ingredients:

  • 1 large whole carp, about 5-6 pounds
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 onions, cut into quarters
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 stalk leek (white part only), washed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into strips
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms (I used oyster mushrooms), washed and coarsely chopped
  • 6 ounces frozen green beans
  • 4 tablespoons rice wine or dry white
  • 4 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce (I used Kikkoman soy sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Vegetable oil
  •     For Sweet & Sour Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 2-3 ounces rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
How to cook Carp with Vegetables and Sweet & Sour Sauce:
  • Carefully clean the fish; remove the entrails and gills, leaving the head, tail and fins. Rinse the fish under running cold water inside and out. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Make several deep incisions crosswise on each side at intervals of an inch or so.
  • Lay the fish on a baking tray, covered with parchment.
  • Drizzle with rice wine or dry white, then rub with salt inside and out. Let stand for half an hour.
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl with starch and thoroughly brush the carp. Let stand for another 15 minutes.
  • Place the onions and garlic in cavity of the fish. Bake in a preheated oven to 320°F (160°C) for about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Meanwhile boil the beans for 3 minutes. Fry carrots and mushrooms in hot oil for about 4 minutes. Add leek and stir-fry for another 3 minutes.
  • Add green beans and pour 1 teaspoon soy sauce; stir. Bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Leave in a warm place.
  • Prepare the sauce. Mix in saucepan 1/2 cup of water with mirin, wine and soy sauce.
  • Add tomato paste and sugar, mix well. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Dissolve the cornstarch in a little water and gently pour in the sauce.
  • Reduce the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes. Pour half of the sauce into the vegetables and mix.
  • Transfer the bake fish on a serving plate and garnish with cooked vegetables.
  • Pour the remaining sauce over the fish and serve immediately.
  •     Bon appetit!
