Crispy pollack fillet with salad

Pollack - my birthday fish

January 21st, 2019 | main dishes

Pollack may sound a bit unspectacular at first, admittedly. But if this salmon is the birthday present of your 12-year-old son, then it looks quite different! What a birthday dinner: Exotic breadcrumbs, crispy fried fish, crisp salad with pineapple and a fresh yoghurt dressing. For all sons, daughters, grandchildren, granddaughters looking for a birthday present, here is the recipe:

Once, we had a “pirate cookbook” (by Elisabeth Bangert) which my children were very fond of during their elementary school years. For one of my many 39th birthdays, my then 12-year-old son surprised me with the desire to cook something for me. He had chosen “fish fillets Caribbean Dream”. Since then, it has always remained the “birthday fish” for us. And, honestly, hats off for the 12-year-old!

Pescado a la Veracruzana – Mexican tuna

In times when we cannot travel due to the corona pandemic, why not bring a holiday feeling on our plate at home! Last weekend we were on a short culinary trip in Mexico, more precisely in Veracruz on the east coast of Mexico. A wonderful tuna fish with a fiery, colorful sauce awaited us and it was as if we were listening to the sounds of marimba and mariachi in the humid, warm evening air… Viva México!

Norway lobster, raw, next to Venetian Cicchetti August 13th, 2018 | Landgänge

Cicchetti in Venice

To begin with, I honestly thought what the Venetian’s hype about those “sandwiches” would be. They name it Crostini, that is Canapées – more or less. Today I know: You have to get involved in it and enjoy Cicchetti like the tapas in Spain with a walk through several wine bars in Venice. Then you get behind it very quickly, what makes the special charm of these hearty little things.

Scallops & champagne – as Christmas is coming soon again

I know some of you will think: “Now she goes mad, the wife of the captain – using champagne for cooking…” Let me say first of all: Yes, of course you can cook this wonderful dish also with Crémant or Cava. But for special occasions, even Champagne fits to perfect the scallops on Capellini with this velvety saffron sauce. The blood oranges make the icing on the cake not only optically. A dream of a starter!

Red fruit jelly as with grandma

In July, strawberries, currants, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries abound. The market tables are bending and one would like to buy all of them at once. The famous North German red fruit jelly called “Rote Grütze” always reminds me of childhood days. On hot summer days we enjoyed it with cold milk – and of course the fruits came from Grandma’s garden.
