  • 3 1/2 lbs. fish
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 lemon
  • 2 -3 carrots
  • 2 -3 onion
  • 2 -3 stalks celery
  • 3/4 cup olive oil

Clean and wash the fish, salt and pepper it then drain. Put enough water to boil the fish in a pot with onions, carrots and celery. Bring to a boil.

Cook for 45 minutes, then add the fish and the oil. When the fish had cooked, remove and lay on a platter.

Strain the broth through a colander and put it again in the pot. Add enough rice (1 heaping tablespoon for each serving) and stir with a fork.

When the rice has cooked, beat 2 eggs, slowly adding the juice of 1-2 lemons and some broth from the pot and pour the mixture in the pot, stirring constantly, over a low fire.

Remove the soup from the fire and serve.

Serve the fish separately.
