Midsummer Recipe: Ginger-glazed Salmon Over Warm Potato Salad
After browsing many Scandinavian recipes for this issue, we struck upon one that is summery, Swedish-inspired and delicious. The place where we found it is sort of the Swedish stereotype—eh hem— Ikea . Just because Ikea makes some of the most popular furniture worldwide doesn’t mean they can’t cook as well so we thought we would give it a try. The verdict? We were impressed, particularly that it tastes great and is easy to make. It ties in three of the most popular ingredients in Swedish cooking: salmon, potatoes and dill. A great dish for busy parents, we thought it was perfect to share with you. So here it is: (thanks Ikea!)
1 pound (500g) of salmon fillets
For the glaze:
3.5 tbsp. (1/2 dl) sugar
1. Melt the sugar to a pale caramel in a saucepan. Add the vinegar and stock.
Regular pepper works just fine. Also, although not very Swedish, adding a splash of soy sauce tastes great.
*Chinese cabbage is the green kind; bok choy is one common type of it.
