Peste la cuptor cu sofran / Baked fish with saffron

Sunt un mare fan peste. Imi place si cumparat in stare congelata dar si proaspat. In concediul de anul acesta am fost cu gasca de prieteni in Delta Dunarii. Un loc absolut minunat si unic pe care nu ai cum sa il uiti si pe care merita sa il revizitezi cat poti de des. In ziua cand ne-am plimbat cu barca pe canalele Dunarii am fost si la un restaurant mic si am incercat un crap la cuptor cu legume, si mamaliguta calda. Divin, mai mult nu are rost sa spun.

Zilele trecute am avut musafiri niste prieteni dragi si m-am gandit sa le pregatesc si un fel principal in afara de aperitiv si desert. Si pt ca tocmai ce cumparasem sofran de la magazin, le-am facut un macrou la cuptor cu legume si asezonat cu piper multicolor si sofran.

Am folosit cam:

  • 3 pesti de marime potrivita
  • 2 cartofi
  • 2 cepe
  • 2 ardei rosii
  • cateva ciuperci ramase dintr-o conserva
  • 1 morcov potrivit
  • sare si piper pt asezonare si 0.06 gr de sofran

Dupa ce-am pregatit pestele, dezghetandu-l, spalandu-l si curatindu-l de intestine, l-am lasat la odihnit, la rece in frigider, taiat in cate 3 bucati

Apoi am taiat legumele si le-am spalat, ceapa a fost taiata solzi, morcovul rondele si cartofii si ardeiul in cubulete. Dupa ce le-am taiat, le-am pus intr-un vas si le-am ametit putin cu niste sare, piper, sofran si o lingura de ulei de masline. Zapacite fiind de dibacia mea le-am lasat putin sa isi revina, cam 30 minute.

Apoi am luat tava, am asezat pestele de la frigider in ea, am pus legumele, si cam o cana de apa si zdup repede la cuptor la un foc moderat.

Cum prieteni mei sunt la fel de vorbareti ca mine si cum nu venisera la noi acasa , in casuta noua, niciodata pana atunci, am uitat pestele le cuptor. Dar nu va ingrijorati, instinctul meu de bucatar innascut a salvat momentul si am ajuns la cuptor la fix, tocmai cand focul trebuia oprit si apa nu scazute de tot.

Finalul a fost fantastic, iata si o poza ca sa dovedesc

Pofta mare si … fir intins prin magazine ca in fiecare weekend din postul Craciunului e dezlegare la peste!

English version:

I’m a big fan of fish. I love it in any state frozen or fresh. This year we spent our summer holiday with the gang of friends in the Danube Delta. An absolutely wonderful and unique place that you can’t forget it and it’s worth visiting it over and over again, as much as you can. The day we had a boat ride through the Danube’s channels we went to a small restaurant and tried a carp baked with vegetables and warm polenta. Divine, it’s  all I can say.

A few days ago we had guests some dear friends and I thought of preparing a main course and dessert and appetizer for them, a full dinner. And as I had bought  saffron from the store, I made ​​a baked mackerel with vegetables and seasoned with multicolored pepper and saffron.

I used about:

3  medium size frozen mackerels
2 potatoes
2 onions
2 red peppers
few remaining mushrooms from a tin
1 medium size  carrot
salt and pepper for seasoning and 0.06 grams of saffron

After I washed the fish, defrosted it, cleaned it from intestines, I chopped it into 3 pieces each. Then I cut and I washed the vegetables, the onions were cut in scales, sliced ​​the carrots and diced the potatoes and peppers. After this  I put them in a bowl and added  some salt, pepper, a tablespoon of olive oil and the saffron. Being distracted by my clever little hands I left the vegetables to recover, for about 30 minutes.
I then took the tray,  placed the fish from the refrigerator in it, added vegetables, and about a cup of water and left the oven to a medium heat of 180 C degrees.

How my friends are just as talkative as I am,  and because it was the first time the visited us in our new home I forgot the fish in the oven. But don’t worry, my instinct as a born chef has saved the day and I got the oven on time.

Enjoy!
