The recipe project

I have been quite tired since I got back but yesterday I managed to take up my recipe project again. The original plan was to have salmon but the salmon at Carrefour didn't look (or smell) very tempting so we skipped the plan and moved on to plan B, dory fillets. I found a recipe online and it turned out really good!

Fish fillets cooked in aluminium foil

Fish fillets
Leek, chopped
Tomatoes, chopped
Onion, chopped
Lemon juice
Garlic, chopped
Dill
Salt
Pepper
Butter

Tear off a piece of aluminium foil, big enough to completely wrap the fish before it is put in the oven. Season with salt and pepper on the fish, cover with chopped vegetables. Sprinkle some lemon juice on top, add some dill and cover with butter before closing the foil tightly around the fish. Repeat until all fish fillets are wrapped and place them all in a baking dish and put in the oven for about 30 min, 225 degrees. Open gently to check if ready. Carefully unwrap the fish and transfer the fish to a serving dish. Pour the liquid from the foil into a sauce pan and use as gravy. Serve with boiled potatoes and a fresh salad. You can basically chose whatever you wish to put ontop of the fish.
Unfortunately I dont have any pictures but it was very delicious and easy to make!

Today is a rainy and grey day in Dubai. Very unusual!! It is still quite warm though so all kids are outside, playing happily in the rain! I am seizing the moment to dash off to a mall, looking for a nurse outfit for my daughters job fair next week. They are all making a poster of a community worker (police, teacher, doctor, vet...) and on Thursday, they have a job fair where the posters will be presented and they have to dress up as their chosen community worker. Since I have been away, none of these preparations have been made (despite the fact that the father has been at home....) so this is the perfect day to sort that out! Elias Arabic homework is getting trickier every time so I am also searching for an Arabic book for children with some explanatory grammar.

  1. Fina bilder du bjuder på från din resa.
    Fisk i folier är en klassiker. På landet hemma i Sverige kan vi göra så på grillen också, men man måste ha en klotgrill eller en grill som man kan reglera värmen på, alltså en med lock.
    Kokar man potatisen så kan man lägga foliepaketen ovanpå medans potatisen kokar. Så gjorde vi nog i skolköket om jag minns rätt.

    Att lära sig arabiska, låter svårt och även att skriva, känns svårare än kinesiskan. Duktig din son är!

    Filmen var underbar, "Best exotic Marigold hotel" och lite roligt att du såg den dagen innan.

    Sedan jag kom tillbaka till Singapore i januari har jag jättesvårt att öppna bloggar från blogspot.com. De är blockerade av Starhub, men nu kan jag kringgå det genom att skriva .se istället för .com. Döjobbigt!
    Ha en bra vecka/ Kram från Singapore
