Fish dishes are very spread in Ukrainian cuisine. Everything, from soups and fish cakes to fish jelly, is made from it. However, fish is mostly just fried in Ukraine.
As a rule, fried fish is served as second course for both, festive and everyday tables. The simplest recipe is to roll fish in flour and then fry it in vegetable oil. There are several ways to fry fish, depending on its size. If fish is hand-size, it is fried in one piece. If it is larger, it's sliced in pieces and each of them is fried separately. If fish is very fatty (such as trout or salmon), you don't need vegetable oil and flour.
Fried fish is tasty both, cold and warm.
