Eating fish more often, leads you to success.

The Fisherman’s meat rolls

No matter what they cook, passionate fish eaters come up with a fish dish at any of their meals. That is an excellent opportunity to make the so much enjoyed “mici” (a Romanian traditional recipe of minced meat rolls) that patriotic Romanians like to taste and relish on any occasion whatsoever. Consequently, the meat rolls are made by the usual recipe, but with sea fish. A bit of onion, some garlic cloves and a drop of wine enrich the traditional recipe.  On the banks of the Danube and in the Delta, the rolls are usually made from fillets of fish with fine bones, practically any sheatfish that “swarms” around the swamp.

Ingredients:

500 grams of white fish, 1 onion, 2 spoonfuls of crust, 2 garlic cloves, parsley, 1 red hot pepper, lemon, salt, pepper. 

Cooking method:

Chop the fish fillets finely and sprinkle some salt on them. Add the onion, the garlic, the spices and the crust and mix well. Add some drops of oil, salt and pepper, an kept the mixture in the refrigerator for about 60 minutes. Then wet your hands and roll the mixture the usual size and put it on a large plate. Oil them and put them on the grill. Enjoy!

The project of promoting and relaunching the fish consumption in Romania, it is funded by POP 2007-2013, with the support of the Romanian Government and European Union. This project is made by Doripesco during 2013-2015.

The purpose of this project is to promote the consumption of fish and highlights the importance of fish consumption. People can understand the importance of fish consumption for the body only by emphasizing its nutritional properties. Fish is an important food for a responsable feeding and for this reason it should not be missing from your shopping cart because of its important nutrients.

At the same time, we must report the decline of fish consumption in Romania, compared to rest of the European Union (annual consumption of fish in Romania is of 4,5 kg/person/year, of 10 times lower than the European Union. The largest consumers of fish and fish products are Portugal and Spain, which consume 48 / 45 kg/person/year).
