Fish with Vegetables Recipe

This is my mom’s recipe, she used to cook pretty much any fish we had like this. Original recipe calls for parsley roots, but they are hard to come around here, so I used parsnips instead and it worked good.

Important moment: the fish should be with bones (so pieces won’t fall apart). Actually this recipe is very good for bony fish: if you let fish simmer with vegetables for longer – smaller bones will dissolve while cooking.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:
