Fish dishes in Moldova Noua, on the shore of the Danube

The county of Caraş-Severin was also involved in the project. This county covers the mountain area of the Banat, the "Banat Highland" (Banatul Montan) and extends south till the Danube Gorge – the Iron Gates of the Danube. Of course, having a river which, in places, reaches 4 kilometres in width, the region has fish dishes as main feature. The restaurants there are pretty basic (the region is not very developed yet), but the fish dishes can sometimes be surprisingly good.

This "fishy" side of the regional cuisine is often overlooked, since the Austrians have left a deep central-european mark in the gastronomy, with the pork meat as main ingredient. But we have here plenty of big rivers (the Danube, the Tisa / Tisza, the Mureş / Máros) and very many of the middle-sized ones. On the other hand, the Orthodox religion encourages the consumption of fish over pork meat.
