Hi and welcome to the Almazan Kitchen Blog!

What shall we do with the drunken sailor early in the morning? Cook him in the wine until he’s sober! Not a sailor of course! We’re talking about fresh organic carp, prepared on coals in balkan traditional “Sač” cookware!


Preparing the garnish:

  • Wash handful of fresh celery and 2 spring onions.
  • Add full hands of young potatoes into the Sač.
  • Cut 2 large carrots and add it into the pot.
  • Same thing do with parsley root.
  • Cut 1 celery root into 4 pieces and add it into the cookware.
  • Disconnect parsley stems from the leaves and add it into the pot.
  • Handful of fresh dill and parsley leaves into the pot, sliced and diced.
  • Cut 2 spring onions into medium pieces and add it into the Sač.
  • Add a pinch of salt.
  • Some olive oil.

And it’s time to cook our sailo…. sorry… carp.


  • First of all, behead it… Feel yourself like a King in the medieval age
  • Cut off the tail.
  • Incise your drunken mate(fish of course! Don’t be silly)
  • Slice 2-3 lemons.
  • Grate the fish with salt.
  • Put lemon slices into the incisions.
  • Lemon, salt and dill inside the carp.

Few more steps and we are done!:

  • Put the fish into the pot.
  • Add few celery sprigs.
  • Dip everything in 1L homemade white wine.
  • Add 10-12 unpeeled garlic cloves into the cookware.
  • Close the pot and put it into the +356°F (+180°C) oven for 45 minutes. While waiting, it would be good to drink some white wine before eating.
  • Enjoy! Bon Almazan!
