Carp in a blender?? Can you tell that story please?
Carpe Ala Blender
-courtesy of my Mad neighbor who doesn’t speak a word of French. Or follow recipes.
In a large pot, Make a Broth: brown 1 onion, 2 celery stalks and 1 carrot, finely shredded, in butter with white pepper and salt (and, if you’re Mad Neighbor, six other spices you found in the cabinet and decided to use becuase you thought they LOOKED PRETTY. Like Tumeric.). Add 2 pints water and boil for 30 minutes.
In a blender or other food processor, combine 1lb (raw) carp fillets, 1 small onion, 2 celery stalks, 4 slices worth of white bread crumbs, salt, garlic and white pepper. this *should* result in a thick, roll-able fish-paste. Unless you are Mad Neighbor, in which case this will end up too soft or too crumbly by turns and you’ll keep adding weird shit into there until it’s got fucking sweet corn in there.
roll tablespoons of paste into balls, and drop into hot broth and boil until cooked, about 5 min each.
They’re good, actually, if you like fish dumplings.
Now, let me show you some researches for the other character of my short-movie : Boru ! The faithful, optimistic and cheerful companion of Umio. Boru used to be human before but since the environment changed a lot, his body adapted and mutated to another form, half-fish and half-human. I’ve taken the koi carp as an inspiration for this character, the bright colors of red, orange and white were amazing contrast to the blues of the sea and sky. At first, I wanted to show in the storytelling some glimpses of the old body Boru used to have but after hearing good advices from teachers and friends, I threw away this idea.
She was not, herself, hugely in favor of motherhood in general. Obviously it was necessary, but it wasn’t exactly difficult. Even cats managed it. But women acted as if they’d been given a medal that entitled them to boss people around. It was as if, just because they’d got the label which said “mother”, everyone else got a tiny part of the label that said “child”…
