About Food – Trout with Pomegranate Sauce

Despite Georgia having 26,060 rivers and 850 lakes, fish dishes make up a small part of traditional Georgian cuisine, particularly when compared with the abundance of meat recipes. Trout and carp are the most popular fish and are usually fried or barbecued. In this old recipe we show how to make fried trout with a delicious pomegranate sauce.
