- 6 herring fillets (you can use a different type of fish if you prefer)
- 2 medium onions chopped
- 5-6 cloves of garlic (leave whole)
- 2 carrots coarsely chopped
- 4 small potatoes cut into small wedges
- ¼ a cup of chopped parsley
- About ½ cup of olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Juice from 1 ½ lemons
- ¼ cup of wine
- 1 glass of water
Clean the fish well and season it with salt, pepper, and a few drops of lemon juice. Set the fish aside in the fridge for about an hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a large pan with a few drops of olive oil and place the fillets on the pan. Place the chopped onion on top on the fish. Add the garlic, carrots, and potatoes to the pan. Season the vegetables with a pinch each of salt and pepper, and the fresh parsley. Add about 1/3 a cup of olive oil, the remainder of the lemon juice, the wine, and water to the pan.
Cook in the oven at 350 degrees. After an hour take the pan out of the oven and turn the potatoes over on the other side. Put the pan back in the oven for another 30 minutes. It is now ready to serve, enjoy!
