I've found a whole lot of yummy recipes involving meat, but not so many recipes with fish. Of course, fish in itself is perfect low carb food, just bake a piece of salmon in the oven and have it with an interesting salad and some dressing. But being Scandinavian and having grown up with all kinds of fish-recipes, I was longing to make something more exciting with fish.

Then I found this gratinated salmon recipe, from the wonderful blog www.linn-sin-verden.blogspot.com
I've translated it to English:

500 grams of salmon
1/2 cauliflower
1/2 capsicum
1 onion
1 tub of Creme Fraiche
1 packet of  chopped, frozen spinach
Grated cheese
Salt, pepper and dill

Dice salmon and put in a heat-resistant tray. Add cauliflower- buquettes, chopped capsicum and chopped onion. Sprinkle on some salt, pepper and dill. Mix ingredients together. Then make a dressing of the Creme Fraiche and the spinach (defrosted), and spread it on top of the fish-and vegetable mix. Lastly, add a generous sprinkling of grated cheese on top.

Bake in the oven on 200 degrees Celsius for approximately 25 minutes.

Easy as that! This recipe is enough to make 3 dinners for me and my partner.


  1. I have a family member who wont eat fish, but I might be able to get away with making a tuna bake. Do you think its ok to use canned tuna in spring water for this recipe? Thanks.

    1. Once again, Sharon, sorry about taking a month(!) to respond - where did the time go??? I'm sure tuna would be fine, let me know how you go :)
