  • Put the smaller fish in a pot with enough water to cover them to boil.
  • Add the olive oil, the sliced onions and the sliced tomatoes.
  • After boiling them for about 30-45 minutes, strain them through a strainer, making sure the meat of fish is well pressed.
  • Return to the heat and now add the larger pieces of fish to it.
  • Add water to cover.
  • After about 1/4 hour, remove it from the heat and slowly take out each large fish and remove the bones, head and fins.
  • Take a full egg and mix it with a fork.
  • Add a little bit of the water from the soup and keep on mixing.
  • Add a small cupful of cooled soup to the egg mixture.
  • Once again add it to the soup pot and add the lemon juice.
  • Heat the soup before serving, but not too much, otherwise the fish will be over cooked
