Simple and typical Romanian dinner


One day I was thinking what to prepare for dinner and I remembered that I didn’t cook any Romanian dishes for quite a while. Having limited time, I chose one of the easiest recipe without spending too much time or money. It is so simple, that you’ll need just some polenta and some fish to fry. I used a very nice and thick piece of tilapia bought fresh from Metro in Richmond Hill, fried it in some oil, cooked a polenta in few minutes and the last important thing and mandatory for an authentic Romanian fish meal is the garlic.

Baked rainbow trout with vegetables


A while ago, I’ve posted and made some New Orleans trout with vegetables. My wife loves it, so tonight for dinner, I’ll serve my family Romanian style baked trout with vegetables after an original recipes from Laura Adamache.

Ingredients for 3 people:

  • 3 trout – about 1.7kg
  • 1 cup white wine (German Riesling “Black Tower”)
  • 3 small carrots, julienned
  • 5 plum tomatoes, cut in thin slices (no skin)
  • 1 large red pepper, julienned
  • 400 gr white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 leek, cut thin slices
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • salt and fresh pepper to taste
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • hot sauce

Combine all the ingredients (except the fish) into a big bowl and leave them for 15-20 minutes so that the flavors will blend together. Cut 3×2 pieces of aluminum foil longer and wider than fish, sit shiny side up, then layer some vegetable mixture, the trout and again vegetables mixture. Seal in aluminum foil, place it in the oven tray and bake it at 200 degrees for about 20 min or so.
