Fish fillets with Crab Sauce / Fiskefilet Med Krabbe

A classic Swedish lunch recipe found in “Cattelins Kokebok” (Cattelin’s Cook Book) published in 1978Fish fillets with Crab Sauce / Fiskefilet Med Krabbe

Cattelin was one of the best and cheapest restaurants in Stockholm. It had survived wars, disasters and changing tastes, and still managed to pack ‘em in until they were forced to shut down in 2011, so they must have done a lot of things right.

This is a nice dish for a lunch party – it is not too time-consuming to make either. The fish you use should be firm. An admonishing word along the way: Make sure the mushrooms are browned properly, not boiled.

ovnsbakt laks med sitronsmør_post_thumb[2]_thumb

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.
