I am one of those girls that like my meat. I like fish too though, but need to eat it more often. And this is the way forward – fish cooked in the oven covered by a nice sauce.

This dish has typical Scandinavian f;avours with prawns, dill and chives, and also some dijon mustard to give it a little zing.

Fish gratin with prawns, serves 2-3

100 g peeled Icelandic prawns


2 tbsp butter

1,5 tbsp flour

salt, white pepper

freshly grated nutmeg

1/2 bunch dill, chopped

1/2 bunch chives, chopped

Mashed potatoes:

ca 400 g potatoes

100 g butter

Butter a dish and place the fish fillets in it. Cook the potatoes very soft in water. Drain and mash with the butter. Season.
