Carp clean from the scales and wash. Slit the belly lengthwise and remove the insides, will also remove the gills, fins cut off with scissors, but I can leave. The head must not be removed - baked carp in the oven tastes better overall.
Carp – fish is bony but there is a small but effective tip on how to make bone not sharp. Just make a few small cuts along the back and between the ribs, the bones in the roasting process will become brittle and prickly.
Carp usually smells like mud, so not all Housewives love to cook them. But if you season the fish with vinegar or lemon juice, leave for a few minutes and wash, the odor will disappear.
Take a deep baking pan. Pour it with vegetable oil, season the fish with salt and place on top of one layer. Chop onion rings, garlic finely chop. Place rings of onion on the fish. Mix sour cream with garlic, salt to taste and pour over the fish sauce. Cook the carp in the oven takes about 30 minutes, during which time the top will be a beautiful appetizing crust of the baked onions and sour cream. Remove from the oven, gently put on the dish, sprinkle with chopped herbs and serve.
To avoid injury when cleaning fish, wear cotton gloves. It is very convenient that slippery carp will be easier to keep.
It turns out very tasty if baked carp in the oven, stuffed vegetables, e.g. carrot, or put inside the parsley.
