Fried Fish

Ryba Smażona

The flavor of all fried fish is enhanced by adding sliced raw onion to the cleaned salted fish. Fish should be salted for at least an hour before frying. An over night salting is better yet. Do not use the onion from the fish. If you must be careful with butter, it will be worth your while to save all week for Fridays fish. No other shortening can do for fish what butter does.

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
