German Poached Carp in White Wine Recipe

Serves/Makes: 8 - 10

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole live carp (about 5 - 6 pounds)
  • 2 onion, minced
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons grated fresh horseradish
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
How to cook German Poached Carp in White Wine:
  • Kill carp by striking a blow on the head (do not remove head or tail). Scale and clean.
  • Cut in serving-size pieces. Rinse and pat dry.
  • Rub salt lightly on each piece. Place in saucepan. Add wine, water, onion, mushrooms, pepper, and parsley.
  • Bring to a boil. Cover and poach gently over low heat until the fish is done (when the eyes pop out), about 20 minutes. Remove the fish from saucepan and place onto a warmed platter.
  • Cook pan juices rapidly to reduce them. Pour over fish.
  • Mix horseradish with sour cream and serve with the poached carp.

Notes:

If possible, buy a whole live carp for this recipe. If you cannot find carp, use any medium-sized freshwater fish. However, the carp is said to have some special qualities, so try your best to find one.
