Summer time is the time where Danish kids eat a lot of ice-cream. In continuation of making ice-cream, today, I am making another of my favorite - strawberry ice-cream. This is a very easy recipe and you don't need any ice-cream machine, but the ice-cream comes out just like ice-cream :-)

I like like to add chocolate chips and chopped nuts into my strawberry ice-cream, but it is of course not a necessity.

Blend 200g stawberries

Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice (approx. half a lemon)

Add 2 tablespoon honey and mix well. Set aside.

 Add 2 egg yolks

Add 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

Add 3 tablespoons of sugar

   Beat egg yolk mixture

 300ml cream (piskefløde)

 Whip cream until yogurt-like consistency is achieved (Don't over-beat)

 Combine egg yolk mixture with whipped cream and gently fold them with a spatula

Add blended strawberries.

 Gently stir and...

Mix well.

Add chocolate chips and chopped almonds... (optional)

Gently stir and...

You can substitute the flour in the meatballs with rolled oats too.

Easy Danish Fish Cake (Fiskefrikadeller)


Serves 4

Ingredients:

1. 225 g cod
2. 225 g salmon
2. 1 egg
3. 1 TBS white wholewheat flour
4. 1 tsp salt
5. 6 turns black pepper mill
6. 2 TBS cooking oil (or you can use a mixture of butter and cooking oil)
7. Dill for garnish

Directions:

1. Cut fish into smaller pieces, putting a few bite-size of salmon aside.

2. Blend fish, egg, flour, salt and pepper blend in a food processor or blender. I use my Magimix blender for this.

3. Add the remaining salmon pieces and mix well.

4. Let the mixture rest for 15-30 minutes in the fridge if you have the time.

5. Heat cooking oil on a pan.

6. Use an ice-cream scoop to form the mixture into fish cakes and fry them on medium heat (no. 5 on my stove) for 5 minutes on each side or until golden using medium heat to ensure the fish is cooked without burning the fish cakes. It's important to have patience when frying the fish cakes and not rush it with higher heat.

7. Sprinkle some chopped dill or parsley and serve.

Tips:

You can also bake them in the oven at 180-degree celsius. Give it 7 minutes on each side.

Additional Information.

I have made a post on Danish fish cakes before, but this recipe is a simpler one that I make, when I am pressed for time. I serve this with potatoes and some salad on the side. This is a dish that my family likes a lot. I find myself making more Danish food for dinner.

Additional Information:

This is a very easy recipe. You don't need an expensive ice-cream machine. It is a recipe I got from the Danish newspapers for kids Børne Avisen. It tasted just like store-bought ice-cream - rich and creamy, but not overly sweet like the store-bought ones. It's of course still not so healthy as it is made of whipped cream. But my kids love this recipe. So it is a once-a-while indulgence. I use the pasteurized egg yolks. Daddy FECS and the kids love it :-) I made this with Baby FECS on 23 August 2020 (4Y3M7D). She really enjoyed it.

At bedtime, I said it is time for her to sleep. She said, "No." A minute later, she said, "Sorry Mommy." I think it is because I have spent time with her making the ice-cream. I quit my job and my last day was 7 August. For the past 6 months, I had been so busy working that I haven't spent much time with her. Within just two weeks, we have a different level of closeness. She was very thankful and discipline gets easier. I am recording this, as I want to remember this. And I am thankful to Daddy FECS for allowing me to be a SAHM.
