Gravlax (raw spiced salmon)
Tastes great, but I would say it was a bit of a waste with the “gravlax” as the flavour of the salmon disappear in the mix with the other ingredients.
It could possibly been better to use smoked salmon instead as it has a more potent flavour.
So once again, I have a brand new bag. I’ve been trying another Matkasse, this time we get the goods from Middagsfrid.
Currently you can even get a 300kr discount on your first Matkasse.
Introduction offer: 300kr discount
But this is not just another Matkasse. I can easily say this is by far the best quality I’ve had out of all Matkasse services that I tried so far. But then of course, this is reflected in the bill. 895kr for 5 dinners serving a family of 4, i.e. 45kr per serving. Not realy a budget alternative, but it comes loaded with fantastic groceries and 1st class meat, fish and poultry, squeaking freash.
So despite the pricey service, this is a no brainer. I say Middagsfrid has no competition in this price range and I’m happy to pay for the quality they deliver.
I predict I’ll keep this Matkasse service for quite a while.
Fresh pasta rolls prepared with spinage and ricotta filling. Pour a little cream in a baking dish and put in the pasta roles. Spread some fresh creme spiced with roasted garlic and thyme on the pasta roll slices. Add a dash of butter on each slice and top them off with fresh ground pepper.
Minced lamb was spiced with fresh herbes and shaped up as skewers on a stick.
Pasta roll slices and Lamb skewers were baked in the oven at 180C (350F) for approximately 15 minutes until they looked amazing.
Serve it up with a ruccola sallad with tomatoes, cucumber and mozzarella.
This is all fine, but add a nice rosé wine and you’ll get some seriously good shit. I settled for a bottle of Boschendal 2011, fantastic!
Flying Jacob (Swedish: Flygande Jacob) is a Swedish casserole based on chicken with bananas, peanuts and bacon, covered with whipped cream laced with hot sauce and cooked in the oven.
In checking the supplies I realised there were no bananas…
So asparagus it was, and a bloody fantastic concoction it is, if I may say so.
And as per usual in preparing Flying Jacob, never go lightly with the hot sauce.
