It’s hard to imagine a New Year’s table without delicious sliced red fish. Salted red fish is loved by many for its delicate taste and excellent compatibility with other products - vegetables, potatoes, various types of bread, eggs, cottage cheese. Shortly before the main holiday, we share with you several options for preparing this popular snack, which can be served on its own or on sandwiches.

Red fish with dill

In this recipe, it is important to use fresh dill - it is especially aromatic and “adheses” more easily to pieces of fish.

Ingredients: 1 kg fish fillet, 1 tbsp. sugar and 2 tbsp. salt, 1 tsp. ground pepper, a small bunch of dill.

Mix the spices and rub the fish thoroughly with them. Roll the fish on both sides in finely chopped dill, cover with cling film and place in the refrigerator for 4 hours. After this time, we take out and cut our treat into slices.

Red fish in brine

Ingredients: 1 kg fish fillet, 700 ml. water, 5 black peppercorns, 3 bay leaves, 4 tbsp. salt.

Cut the fish fillet into arbitrary pieces and place in a convenient container. Add spices and bay leaves to boiling water, cook the brine for another 5 minutes, then cool and pour it over the fish. Close the container and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. The finished fish is slightly moist and very tender in taste.

Red fish in oil

Ingredients: half a kilo of fish fillet, 1 tbsp. l. salt, 200-300 ml. vegetable oil.

Cut the fish fillet into slices and place a layer of pieces in a container. Sprinkle with salt and pour in oil (the oil should completely cover the fish pieces). We repeat this procedure with all the pieces, then close the container and put it in the refrigerator for a day. After this time, you can enjoy the homemade delicacy.
