The nuances of cooking meat of different fish
Recipe fish dumplings depends on what kind you decided to use: one fish fatter, the other more lean, one skinny, the other is not, etc.
- Pike and walleye. Recipe of dumplings of pike, as well as the recipe of dumplings of pike-perch will be somewhat complicated by the fact that these fish species are very small and dense scales, which are difficult to clean. And if pike is still possible to remove the scales, armed with a scaler (a special device similar to a fine grater), then walleye easier, carefully remove the skin and discard. In addition, pike and Zander are very many small bones, and remove them all is simply impossible. So, once you remove the backbone, ribs, and fins, just let the fillets twice through a meat grinder to grind all the bones. Their meat dry, so in the stuffing, you can add some lard (about a fifth of the total volume) or fried in vegetable oil onions.
- Som. This fish is great because it has no small bones, and it is very greasy. So the recipe of dumplings catfish is not necessary to add any fat- enough onions and spices. Please note that unlike other fish species, the catfish is the fat part — not the abdomen and the tail.
Salmon and trout. Recipe of ravioli with salmon and trout — perhaps the easiest because it is so delicious by itself that does not require additional effort (especially because it has no small bones). Just cut into small fillets (we recommend not to spoil the texture of the meat grinder), add the onion with spices, and the stuffing is ready.
- Chum and pink salmon. Fish average fat, and its flesh is moderately fibrous. Feature recipe of ravioli with salmon is that you need to balance the oiliness and softness of the meat in the stuffing (the same as in the recipe of dumplings of salmon). Here we need an individual approach. If you got a female, then most likely it will not be very fat (males are usually fatter), and you can add a little minced pork fat.
Minced fish dumplings prepared one of two ways: grinding by hand or in a meat grinder. Method depends on the preferences of the cook and the species (if many small bones, it is better to skip through a meat grinder on a fine grid).
Why a carcass is better than fillet
Of course, there is always the temptation to buy ready-made frozen fillets (especially because it defrosts quickly) and immediately start cooking without wasting time on cutting. But the dumplings with fish meat is still better to cook whole fish. What are its advantages:
- the whole carcass with the head less;
- there is a thick layer of ice, as on a fillet;
- in neporochnoe fish to find the eggs (it’ll complement the meat);
- from the head, backbone, tail and fins can be cooked with a delicious broth for dumplings or soup.
