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!
