It’s Friday and here at my place we call it “champagne Friday”. We always drink sparkling wine on Fridays to celebrate the weekend. It’s a nice tradition that I think you really should try. Sparkling wine is delicious as it is, but sometimes it’s fun to spice it up a little bit. So today I’m going to share a super easy recipe that will add a tropical feel to your bubbly wine that you can serve to your guest at a dinner party or just to yourself. The secret?

Passionfruit vinaigrette

sashimi passionfruit delliedelicious

It’s Thursday and I’m having my weekly sushi craving. Every week my body screams for sushi, so I just have to listen and eat it. But since it’s passionfruit week, I thought I’d go a little fusion. Passionfruit and raw fish isn’t very Japanese, but in South America it’s very common, specially in Brazil. So I decided to do a sashimi with fresh Salma (salmon) from Norway and a passionfruit vinaigrette as a dipping sauce. I’ve added a wasabi cream just to bring the acidity down a notch. I’ve also used passionfruit seeds for some texture and freshness. To add some saltiness I’ve added some black roe. For some extra passionfruit taste I’ve used the vinaigrette and made a low profile passionfruit cream.

This is a perfect dish to serve as an appetizer or even on a buffet. But you can of course do what I do, just have it all to yourself. I hope you’ll like it! Read more

Cured Cucumber / Snabb Färsksaltad Saltgurka

Snabb saltgurka

(Swedish version further down)
I never cared to much for cucumber when I was a kid. But I really loved cured cucumber! I loved going to the grocery store with my parents and playing around with the cured cucumber in it’s container with tongs. When I moved away from home I learned how to appreciate cucumber as it is but I also learned how to cure it myself. And I’ so happy that I did. This is so easy and it tastes delicious! BUT you have to give it at least 24 hours before it’s done. But it worth the wait!.It tastes best after 2-3 days but any time is a good cured cucumber time.
