The Swedish goddess – being inspired

As I mentioned yesterday this week I’m finding inspiration for my dinners in this fantastic cookbook (translated ‘The simple good’) written by Anna and Fanny Bergenström (so please note, I do not take any credit for the recipe!).wpid-wp-1426452149989.jpeg

For Monday dinner I picked a fish dish called Totte’s fish for two, which seemed simple and yum, and hey guys – it was!

You simply start with peeling the potatoes and then slice them real thin into a bowl. Sprinkle some olive oil over them, add some crushed garlic, salt and pepper and mix (gently) together. Layer them in greased oven safe container.

You leave the potatoes in the oven (210 degrees celsius) for 25 minutes, during which time, if you are smart, clean up the mess that you made sorting the potatoes out. I also used the time for some Farmville II and making a small green side salad. I’m not much for dressings so I just add olive oil, salt and pepper.

When the potatoes are done, you take them out of the oven, add the fish on top and put some big dollops of garlic butter on top. Also this I make myself (you know, the budget thing) but you can buy it ready-made at the grocery store.

According to the recipe you are also supposed to put slices of lemon on top of the fish (and butter), I however take the easy way out (in other words, I forgot to buy lemons) and use the lemon juice you can get at the shop and keep in the fridge for ages.

Once this is done, you put the potatoe-fish dish back in the oven for about 12 minutes until the fish is done. And voila, you have your dinner, and a good one to boot.

This is definitely a dish I will revisit even if it came out on the pricier side of my dinners, I guess it’s all about being on the look out for good prices on the fish as that is the biggest cost. Thanks Anna and Fanny for the amazing food!
