Serve this delicate salmon with boiled potatoes  and boiled snow peas or cucumber salad. The very best salmon is “wild salmon” salmon that has lived naturally. But the farmed fish are almost as good and far less expensive.

Rainbow trout or other large trout can be cooked in the same way, or buy slices of large cod or other fish. Cooking fish in the oven in foil is convenient and saves on dishwashing. The fish take care of itself and you can concentrate on making the accessories.

Baked Mountain Trout with Cucumber Salad / Ovnsbakt Fjellørret Med Agurksalat

I grew up with mountain trout like this. Both of my parents were eager sports anglers and went to the mountains every single autumn. They returned home with trout enough for Sunday dinners lasting us till late summer – Ted

Indonesian cuisine is one of the most vibrant and colourful cuisines in the world, full of intense flavour. It is diverse, in part because Indonesia is composed of approximately 6,000 populated islands of the total 17,508 in the world’s largest archipelago, with more than 300 ethnic groups calling Indonesia home. Many regional cuisines exist, often based upon indigenous culture and foreign influences. Indonesia has around 5,350 traditional recipes, with 30 of them considered the most important. Indonesia’s cuisine may include rice, noodle and soup dishes in modest local eateries to street-side snacks and top-dollar plates.

In 2011, Indonesian cuisine began to gain worldwide recognition, with three of its popular dishes make it to the list of ‘World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods (Readers’ Pick)’, a worldwide online poll by 35,000 people held by CNN International. Rendang top the list as the number one, followed closely by nasi goreng in number two, and satay in number fourteen.

Indonesian cuisine varies greatly by region and has many different influences. Sumatran cuisine, for example, often has Middle Eastern and Indian influences, featuring curried meat and vegetables such as gulai and curry, while Javanese cuisine is mostly indigenous, with some hint of Chinese influence. The cuisines of Eastern Indonesia are similar to Polynesian and Melanesian cuisine. Elements of Chinese cuisine can be seen in Indonesian cuisine: foods such as noodles, meat balls, and spring rolls have been completely assimilated.

Fried Mackerel with Sour Cream Sauce / Stekt Makrell med Rømmesaus

A classic Norwegian fish recipe found on matprat.no
Fried Mackerel with Sour Cream Sauce / Stekt Makrell med Rømmesaus

This is a serving method that has been used in the eastern part of Norway for time immemorial. One can of course cook the whole fish, but here it is chosen to use fillets. Slightly simpler considering that the super delicious sauce traditionally steals a lot of attention on the plate both from fish, cucumber salad and lemon.

Fried Trout With Cucumber Salad And Crème Fraîche Sauce / Stekt Fjellørret Med Agurksalat Og Crème Fraîchesaus

A great dish full of sweet memories found on alleoppskrifter.no
Fried Trout With Cucumber Salad And Crème Fraîche Sauce / Stekt Fjellørret Med Agurksalat Og Crème Fraîchesaus

I grew up on this dish, with sour cream sauce, not crème fraîche sauce though. No one knew what crème fraîche was round this neck of the woods back in the fifties and early sixties.

Both my mom and dad was eager anglers, so they headed for the montains every autumn and retured with trout enough to last us till well into the early summer. My granny, one of the bats ;-), came to take care of my sister and me while they were away – Ted
