Tonight we had smoked salmon on thin crispy bread. Seasoned it with some black lava salt from Iceland and creme fraiche. Delicious!
The best thing about the Norwegian summer is that the days are so long. After being on the beach morning to evening, it is still so light outside that no one feels like heading back home. A common thing to do here are barbecues, be it in public places or at home. We chose home tonight and tried out a new recipe.
Who says Barbecues have to be nothing more than fatty meat? Especially when you live right by the sea and can have fresh fish at all times. We grilled a big piece of salmon filet on a flat piece of cedar wood. It gives the fish the best taste you can imagine without adding any butter or oil.
This is what you need:
- Salmon filet
- cedar wood (available in any store that has grill eqipment)
Put the salmon on a big piece of cedar wood that has been soaked in salted water for at least an hour. Cut the lemon into slices and place them on the salmon so that the whole fish is covered. Add salt and pepper. Put the fish and the cedar wood on the barbecue and grill it for about 15 minutes.
But not only did we have a delicious dinner, we also had the best sea view
