  • Heat 3/4 cup vegetable oil in a deep skillet over medium heat until hot. Add fish in batches and fry on both sides until golden, 5 to 8 minutes per batch. Remove fish from skillet and set aside.

  • Heat remaining 1/4 cup oil in a separate skillet and cook onions until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add carrots, parsnip, and celeriac; mix well. Add water and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer on low heat until vegetables are soft, about 30 minutes. Check and add more water if mixture becomes too dry. Stir in tomato paste and simmer for 5 minutes more.

  • Layer vegetables and fried fish in a 10-inch round serving dish, starting and ending with vegetables.

It is better to make this dish without dipping the fish in egg like traditional fried fish, flour and spice is enough as it allows the juices from the carrots to seep in and makes the dish that much tastier. The traditional recipe in many Polish books also calls for 4 carrots. My grandmother in Poland also made this dish with more carrots as that is the base of the sauce or filling and adds a nice sweetness to the dish. I also found this was too much onion, I will only use one next time. Read More
