Fish Cakes "Nordic by Nature" with jacket potatoes and cucumber salad
"I love the ships, the sea and the harbor,
And I love it, after a party, to fall asleep on the banks of the Elbe.
I'm a Hamburg boy and I get full swing,
If I hump and jump and sing from Hamburg. Saturday night - 'n Kööm and 'n cool blondes
And in a nutshell still a fishcake
Even Störtebeker knew that the north rocks
And has docked with his barge here.
Yes, you hear right, today is disco time .
Why? Because everything's screaming for disco.
And you're wondering if the king keeps the promise?
Yeah, of course, because I'm Nordic by Nature! "
I'm not Nordic by nature (but from the pot), but the text could have been from me. Isser but not. Is'of fat bread. But I've got a fishcake on the fly too.
Fresh from Mel's small galley:
And so it goes for a young, a Deern & a tot:
Small potatoes in bowls (about 4-5 pieces per person) in salted water. Approximately Cook for 15 - 20 minutes, then drain and keep warm in the pot.Slice 1 snake cucumber with thinly sliced pans and serve with 1 teaspoon salt , > black pepper , 1 good tsp dried dill , 1 tbsp brown sugar , 2 -3 tbsp white wine vinegar , 1 finely chopped onion and 1 tablespoon of neutral vegetable oil in a bowl. Strain cucumber salad and stir occasionally.
Approx. Wash 700g salmon filet , pat dry and check for bones. This is easy if you put the fillet over a small bowl turned upside down. Then the nasty little things look all by themselves out of the arched filet. Near the tail (ie at the narrow end) are usually still a few hidden. To pluck with your fingers or tweezers.
And another tip: TK fillets often contain extra water, as some manufacturers "tune" the fish with water to make it heavier. If you use frozen fish, let it thaw completely and gently dab it dry with kitchen paper. Otherwise the meatballs may be muddy.
Cut the fillets into cubes with a sharp knife and 1 egg, 1 tsp salt , 1 strong pinch of black pepper 1 chopped onion , 1 handful of parched parsley and the juice of half a lemon in a bowl. Mix with a blender a few times until a homogeneous mixture has formed (still looks semi-leaky, but later it will be great). Mix 4 tbsp breadcrumbs or mix well with a fork. The mass should be soft but malleable. Possibly. add crumbs.
On a small Give plate some flour . Heat 3 tablespoons of cooking oil in a large pan over a medium heat. From the fish farce form meatballs, turn them briefly in the flour and pour into the pan. Fry each side for about 6 minutes until a brown crust has formed.
Serve the finished fish cakes with the jacket potatoes and cucumber salad.
