You can discover an interesting recipe for a tasty dish in the most unlikely places. Usually, I don't take advertising leaflets from the shops I visit. This time I took one and, among the tens of proposals for ideal gifts for him and her, I found some recipes for Christmas Eve dishes.


We like herrings regardless of how they are prepared or served, and so this time I have another interesting proposal. The original name for herrings with curry powder and raisins was "aunt Basia's herring". According to the recipe, you should leave the dish to rest in the fridge before serving. It doesn't taste so good if you eat it immediately after preparing it.



200g of herrings in oil

2 onions

2 tablespoons of tomato concentrate

2 tablespoons of mayonnaise

1 bay leaf

3 allspices

3 tablespoons of oil

a fistful of raisins

salt and pepper



The question for today: What can be prepared with cold smoked salmon? In my fridge a tasty-looking fish quietly waits for its turn. I could put it on some bread with fresh cucumber or add it with eggs to a spinach salad but ... "it has already happened before". And it isn't true that it doesn't come back ;-). However, today it is time for something new. It is time to search for a new recipe. There's no doubt that whatever the results of this search, the salmon won't go uneaten.


This time the on-line Lidl cookery book came to my aid. I found a recipe for steak tartare with smoked salmon. It is not complicated and it is a very tasty dish. I think that it could be a proposal for fish for the Christmas Eve table, and for Christmassy traditionalists it could be a dish for supper on New Year's day.



200g of cold smoked salmon

1 spring onion

3 dill pickles

6 pickled mushrooms

1 small teaspoon of horseradish

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 tablespoon of soy sauce

1 tablespoon of minced dill

salt and pepper



In Poland we used to say that of all sweets we like herrings the most. This means that we don't like sweets at all, so we choose herrings when people ask us if we want dessert. In my family we can't say this, because we like them both.
