Ojojoj, this was the best Citron Tartelette which I have ever eaten!
I love French sweets! Unfortunately it’s very difficult to find French cakes here in Stockholm. Swedish people are very good at importing different food cultures form different countries like Pizza, Tacos, and Sushi etc. except sweets. I think it is because they already have a strong “Fika” culture with Swedish Sweets such as bullar and kakor.
When I baked “chou à la crème” (Actually I tried to make croquembouche…) for my friend’s weddingn none of my Swedish friends knew that.
Perhaps it’s changing. “Petite France” in Kungsholmen has beautiful and tasty French cakes.
A funny thing is that Petite France got very high score in Semla ranking.
Semla is a very Swedish sweet bun, which is quite similar to chou à la crème. Try and enjoy!
It’s Sunday morning. The Fish brought out all the trash from last week as allways. It was a little bit different from a usual Sunday. He came back with a little brown box! I compleatly forgot that it’s Saint Valentine's Day today!!
One week ago, The Fish got information from Roby. “You can buy salmon very cheeply at the new ICA MAXI!!” Of course he went and bought it. We usually buy salmon when it’s nice price and put in the freezer. Then we can eat Sushi, Nabe and meunière etc. whenever we want.
Yesterday, we had quite heavy dinner with a “French” theme with our friends. So we wanted to have Japanese food today. This salmon meunière is a French/Japanese mixed menu. Put salt and pepper on the salmon pieces and let it be for a while. (You can wash the rice and make the Miso soup while waiting.) Remove water from the salmon pieces and dip them into flour. Bake the salmon with a little oil (raps oil is recommended) in a frying pan and serve on a plate. Using the same pan, fry some mushrooms and add Dashi stock, Mirin, soy sauce. If you prefer the sauce little viscous, add potato flower with water. Serve with fried salmon.
This dish does not contain any butter and lemon like “real” French meunière dose. But Dashi stock and soy sauce has a very nice and rich taste. It’s also very quick too make. We eat this dish as normal daily food.
By the way, Yesterday’s French dinner was very nice. The fish went to France last week for work, and he brought nice French foods and wine. Start with French sausage (It’s NOT salami, it’s “_____” ), Foie gras with Daikon (rättika) as a starter, Boeuf bourguignon for Main course. After cheeze, we had Macarons for desert.
