DIRECTIONS

  • For this meal you have to have large round pot with low rim.
  • Put olive oil in a pot and sauté the onion until it is soft.
  • Put fish in (if it is too big cut it in portions), fry very shortly. Add vinegar and cook gently for 2 more minutes.
  • Add garlic and bay leaf. DO NOT STIR with any kind of ladle, just shake the whole pot (if you have wooden flat ladle, you may move fish a bit).
  • Add tomato, salt, pepper, raisins and water to cover fish.
  • Cook open for 50-60 minute on not too strong fire.
  • Add water if evaporates too quickly.
  • Try it: if it's too sour, add sugar.
  • At the end add parsley leaves and some more olive oil.
  • Serve with hard corn mush (polenta, as we say).
