A spicy Asian inspired dinner recipe found on kiwi.no
Thick oblong panettas made with cod and shrimps breaded with flaked coconut and served with a hot fried noodle salad that smells deliciously of the far east is a combination that should tempt the most choosy among people.
Fish cakes are Irish traditional fare at its very best. These little wonders are created by combining mashed potatoes, flaked cooked fish, and herbs, then formed into individual cakes and coated in breadcrumbs before frying.
This is a perfect recipe for using leftover mashed potatoes, if such a thing ever exists. But don’t worry you can always boil a few spuds for mashing to make these delicious and economical fish cakes.
Cod fish cakes may be simple but are ever so tasty. Traditional Irish fish cakes often use salmon or a mixture of salmon and whitefish but, for now, here’s a recipe that uses just cod.
A spring recipe from “Carl Butlers kokebok Fortsettelsen” (Carl Butler’s Cook book-The Continuation)
published by Cappelen in 1991
In 1974 cookbook history was written in Scandinavia. That year a bunch of foodie friends published a cookbook that would become one of Scandinavia’s most popular, “Carl Butler’s Cookbook”. With folded corners, patches of pie dough, tomato and French mustard and an unmistakable scent of dried herbs and garlic this book is found in hundreds of thousands of Swedish, Finnish, Danish and Norwegian homes. The book put for the first time coq au vin, moussaka and patè on many a scandinavian’s table. This book was the first cook book I bought and I still got it and still use it.
It took 17 years before I and every other Scandinavian fan of the book could rush to the book store to buy the continuation. It is simply called “Carl Butler’s Cook book – The Continuation”. This recipe is the first one I post from that book, a lot of recipes from the one from 1974 has been posted already as they are also featured in a cook book Butler made for IKEA and I’ve posted lots of recipes from that book – Ted
A recipe from “Bogen om Kyllinger” (The Book about Chicken)
published by Lademann in 1972
The Danes are fabulous when it comes to breading whether we’re talking breakfast, lunches or dinners. Breaded veal, plaise, other types of fish or chicken breast on a sandwich, bed of noodles or with remoulade, cucumber salad and mealy potatoes. Have your pick, the Danes will make it a meal to remember –Ted
