There are two national treasures in Norway, both laying in the sea. Oil and Salmon! Salmon is one of the largest export items of Norway, and no wonder actually. The fish is wonderfully healthy, rich on Omega3 fatty acids and good for your diet!
One would think that since we have fish on our doorstep, the prices on fish would be low. The truth is that good quality, fresh fish is expensive. Some years back Salmon was considered an expansive fish. Nowadays you can buy salmon fillet for around 80,- kr kilo on sale. Which I am very happy for, as my children LOVE fish. (Yes, I know….lots of kids don’t…. so I am lucky).
- 1 kg of good quality fresh Salmon fillet (buy it in a fish-shop or Ultra, Mega or ICa
- For marination: 1 dl. of lemon juice, 1 dl. of EVOO, green herbs (e.g. estragon, parsley, dill or whatever you have got) freshly grinded salt and black pepper, and couple of cm of fresh ginger grated.
Marinate your fish for about 20 minutes. The lemon will start “cooking” the fish if you rest it for longer. Mix all the above ingredients and marinate in room temperature. When marinated bake in the oven on 200 degrees for 20 minutes or until the fish is firm to touch.
With the fish I have made a mushroom and onion ragu. Boiled potatoes and Hollandais sauce and some veggies (any kind, these were the one I had in hand).
