Day 3. Your favorite Christmas recipe/food
This is actually what we eat on the 25th, or, we used to eat it, before my grandmother just recently passed away. Every year on the 25th the whole family would gather at her place for dinner.
What we had was a whole trout, baked in the oven with dill, sliced lemons and loads of butter and spices. It was a lovely way to calm our stomachs down after a heavy Christmas dinner the night before. We had potatoes and pickled cucumber slices and heavy cream as side dishes. This pretty much sounds like a typical Norwegian meal, haha.
What you would need:
- A whole trout (or two, depending on how many you are serving)
- One whole lemon
- Some dill
- Any kind of butter, i would recommend herb butter if you can get your hands on that
- Any spices you love to have with fish
- Whatever you would like as side dishes.
All you need to do is to slice the fish open (it should have been cleaned out at the fisherman’s store) and fill it with the lemon, dill, butter and spices. This is generally an easy dinner to make, and it’s not that expensive either if you’re lucky enough to find a place that sells good trout. It’s kinda funny how they always advice us to eat more fish, then charge ridiculous prices for it. Anyways, this was not supposed to be a discussion about economics!
