Ceviche – raw marinated salmon

Thank you for an excellent recipe, my dear sister Elisabeth! It turns out raw fish can be more than just sushi, in this case lemon and lime juice is used to “cook” the fish, and adds a lot of freshness. This is a dish that can be served with toasted bread and a green salad, and is suitable for lunch or as a starter.

Fajitas party!

My son Martin is a huge fajitas fan, and through the years we have made fajitas on a regular basis. Not only is it delicious, but also very healthy! Lots of vegetables and chicken, and for the low-carbers, just elminate the tortilla.

Chicken “en papillote”

I have made this dish so many times, and every time I have the same reaction; how can something so good and delicious be so easy to make. It takes appr 5 minutes to assemble, and for the rest it cooks it self in the oven. When serving this to guests, I leave the paperbag on the plate, so that each and every one can have the pleasure of opening the package, and get that first aroma straight up their nose 🙂

Chicken Souvlaki

This is another one of my sons favorite dishes, and it is a great healthy weeknight dinner. It is very important to serve this with a good tzatziki!

Mediterranean meatloaf

When you want a quick and easy everyday dinner, recipes like this are great. Ok, it does take a long time in the oven, but the prep work goes very fast!

Hot fishsoup

This is a fast and simple fish soup with a little bit of heat, and tastes delcious!!

Salmon with tahini and herbs

In this recipe the salmon goes middle eastern style, as both the spice sumac and tahini is sued. Tahini, or sesame paste, is a very typical middle eastern ingredient.

Shrimps with ouzo & feta

This recipe originated in the 1960s when tourism really took off in Corfu, and has a very retro-feel about it. It’s extremely moreish too. The combination of ouzo, a well-flavoured tomato sauce and some feta served with some preferably barbecued prawns is irresistible. A good Friday night dish….

Spiced lamb shanks

Lamb shanks is my favorite piece of lamb, and this recipe is inspired by Jamie Oliver, and his recipe from the cookbook “The Naked Chef”.

Cod with tomato cream sauce

This is a very easy and quick cod dish, and the lovely mild sauce wtih a hint of cream, goes very well with this lean white fish.

Gorgonzola panna cotta with apple salad, walnut and balsamic

Ok, yes, I am a bit panna cotta crazy. This is a panna cotta recipe that serves as a starter. And I have to say, if you ever want a recipe for a starter that can be made well in advance, this is the recipe for that. And it even has a certain wow-factor, in my humble opinion.

Mushroom soup with porcini croutons

Soups are part of the autumn. This is the recipe for you that do not go out in the forest to pick the mushrooms, but has to rely on whats on offer in the supermarket. In this recipe we have used the brown mushrooms, which gives the soups it characteristic color. Some would maybe say that white mushrooms would give a more “attractive” color, but flavor rules!

Tomato soup

Today we are making soup, Napels style. It may look a bit boring, but I can assure you, this is an absolutely heavenly tomato soup, all velvety and rich in flavor. The secret is to oven roast the tomatoes first.
