Step-by-step cooking recipe
Take a bucket of 10 liters, pour 8 liters of water (if you are in the Volga delta or on the northern rivers, then take water directly from the reservoir), set it on a campfire tripod.
Carefully prepare the fish, gut, remove the gills, rinse, cut into medium pieces. Rinse vegetables, peel and cut into large pieces.
Prepare small fish and leave whole, wrap in cheesecloth with bay leaves and put in a bucket. Remove from the bucket after 20 minutes.
Add all the ingredients to the second broth at once. After 20 minutes, pour in vodka and extinguish the charcoal from the fire in the ear, salt and pepper (the ear should be slightly more peppery than ordinary soups) after 3 minutes everything is ready. Sprinkle with finely chopped herbs. Double ear “Belly balm” – ready. Bon Appetit!!!
Important! In order to avoid a fight, fish, potatoes are laid out equally on plates, and then the broth is poured.
