Fish with carrots

I am sorry for being away for so long. Holidays in December and then my sister's visit did not leave me much time to write in the blog. But I am back and cannot wait to share my next dish with you.
I do not really know what took me so long to make this dish. It was one of my favorite dishes growing up but I've never cooked it since I have moved to the US. Recently I've been looking through my Russian cuisine cookbook and discovered this recipe under 'Cuisine on the Volga'. So when Omur bought white fish this week-end I knew exactly what I would do with it.
I just love the wonderful sweetness the carrots give to the fish. My mom would normally serve it with some boiled potato and a salad on the side. But honestly I can eat this fish as is. And did I tell you it tastes even better the next day. So think about a perfect lunch having it wrapped in a wheat tortilla. Hope you will love it as much as I do.

2 fillets of haddock or cod fish
salt and pepper
oil for frying
3-4 carrots
1-2 onions
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp Mayonnaise
1/2 cup of broth
1-2 bay leaves

Start by cutting your fish into small pieces, say 1-2 inches long . Season it with salt and pepper, dredge into flour and then fry in a small amount of oil. Remove the fish from the pan.
To the same pan add thinly sliced onions and saute for about 5 minutes until translucent. Now you can add grated carrots. Pour half of the broth over the mixture, cover with a lid and let it cook on med low for another 5 minutes. Now mix together sour cream and mayonnaise, spread it over the carrot mixture, place your cooked fish on top,and pour the rest of the broth plus bay leaves over it. Now cover with the lid again and cook on low for about 20 minutes.
