Swabian potato salad on Valentine's Day

February 14th, 2019 | side dishes

No typical food on Valentine’s Day? Maybe not. But if your love is about 9,000 kilometers away since six weeks. And if he is still on duty for four more weeks… Valentine’s Day will be canceled anyway… So there is a pragmatic meal for the children and me: Swabian potato salad – with sausages or meatballs – or as we had it today with Skrei.

Swabian potato salad on Valentine's Day

Skrei is the Norwegian winter cod, so called during the migration to its spawning grounds and is one of the most exclusive and healthy fish. It’s only available during a very short fishing season from January to April. During this time, the skrei moves from the Barents Sea to its spawning grounds near the north coast of Norway, because it is too cold in its home grounds for spawning. That’s where the name comes from – Skrei means “The Wanderer”.

And Valentine’s Day? Oh, that’s it. Valentine’s Day is “nothing for sailors” anyway …

What does Ratatouille have in common with Frankfurt Green Sauce?

Granted, at first glance (or better: bite) not much. But surely there are infinitely many, different opinions about the “what” and “how” for both dishes. What exactly are the ingredients and how exactly is it prepared. One thing seems indisputable: tomatoes, aubergines, zucchini and peppers are a must, everything else can.
