The common carp or European carp (Cyprinus carpio) is a freshwater fish member of the minnow family (Cyprinidae) which is named after it. Although it is farmed and fished across the world, you will typically found it in eutrophic waters of Europe and Asia.
The carp has primarily white tender meat, with a long a strip of dark meat in its centre. Moderately oily, its tender flaky texture gives out a mild to subtle flavour suited for a variety of recipes. You can bake it, smoke it, steam it, fry it or turn it into a stew.
