Live Carp or Carp substitute in ABQ?

vlad | Dec 19, 2007 05:30 PM

My sister-in-law from Hungary wants to make a Hungarian dish called rácponty for Christmas. As the name suggests, if you can read Hungarian that is, it is based on carp.

Anyhow, while carp is easy to get a hold of in Central Europe, it is not so easy here in the States.


1) Any suggestions for places to get carp in Abq. or Santa Fe?


2) Any suggestions for a fish that is similar to carp in taste and consistency?

Thanks in advance,
