Nordic Tuna Salad

When you’ve tasted a simple Danish tuna salad and it stays with you years after you’ve had it. When you remember how much you like it and think you can replicate it. Of course, it would not be the same as you were not the one that made the salad that created such a lasting impression. You can, however, adapt what you remember the taste … Continue reading Nordic Tuna Salad

Definately worth the work! I would have preferred to … Continue reading Grilled Garlic Prawns

Thai Fish Cakes

This is a dish that I had done before years ago and took the chance of making again just for this blog. I’ve used frozen Pangasius fillets instead of what was used before, tilapia and/or other white fish fillets. The fish cakes did not turn out as they would have, very likely due to the type of fish fillet that was used. I will have to try … Continue reading Thai Fish Cakes
