1/2 dl white wine or white wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
white pepper and/or pepper mix, to season
finger salt, to serve

Place the whitefish fillets on the bottom of a flat bowl. Make the marinade by mixing all ingredients together and then pour it over the fillets. Let the fish marinate in the fridge from half an hour to an hour. The longer it marinades, the more it ”cooks”.

False morel and nettle risotto

2 onions
2 garlic cloves
2 l chicken or vegetable stock
150 g parmesan cheese
50 g butter
4 tbsp olive oil
5 dl risotto rice
1 dl white wine
5 dl false morels, carefully handled and chopped (check the handling instructions from a good mushroom book or from the web!)
2 dl dried nettle or fresh leaf parsley
salt and black pepper from the mill

Chop the onions into small cubes. Prepare and heat up the chicken or vegetable stock in the sauce pan. Grate the parmesan cheese.

Heat 40 g butter and 4 tbsp olive oil in a large pan or saucepan. Glaze the onions in butter-oil mixture. When they are softened, add rice. Roast the rice grains with onion, stirring so that their surface turns translucent, but don’t let them burn. Whisk in white wine and continue stirring. Add carefully handled false morels.

As the liquid begins to evaporate, pour in chicken stock with a scoop so that your risotto keeps cooking in the liquid. Stir the risotto and add stock little by little. Cooking will take approximately 15–20 minutes. If you wish, you can half-cook your risotto in advance and finish the cooking just before serving.

When the rice tastes nearly cooked, add nettle or leaf parsley. Lift cooked or slightly al dente risotto from the heat and add the rest (10 g) of the butter with grated parmesan cheese. Mix them into hot risotto and let them melt. Check whether your risotto needs some salt. It may be you don’t have to add it since chicken broth and cheese are already salty in taste. Serve your risotto either in portions or from a big platter, and garnish with parmesan cheese, black pepper and a dollop of good olive oil.

Egg filling
6 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely crushed
200 g cottage cheese
½ bunch of chives, chopped
50 g crème fraîche, for brushing the toast layer

700 g rye toast
lemon juice and/or milk, to moisten

3 ripe avocados
200 g frozen peas
½ tsp salt

100 g smoked salmon
½ lemon

Start making this sandwich cake by mixing the ingredients of both fillings in their own bowls before starting assembling the cake.
Make the cake base by placing six slices of toast on serving tray or baking paper in rectangular shape. Moisten the bread slices with lemon juice (approx. 2–3 tbsp per layer) and with milk if you like your cake well-moistened. Spread smoked salmon filling evenly on the toasts.

Add another layer of toasts and moisten them with lemon (and milk). Spread a thin layer of crème fraîche on them before the egg filling. Cover with a third layer of toasts and moisten again. Put the cake in the fridge and let it season overnight, if possible.

Make the coating. Chop the avocados into a narrow, tall bowl, and whisk in the peas. Use the blender to create a smooth paste, season with a pinch of salt. Coat your cake with this green paste and start decorating as you wish, using your imagination. Garnish with smoked salmon, egg, lemon wedges, chives and dill. Also avocado wedges, roe, edible flowers and herbs look good on the cake. Coat and decorate the cake on the same day you serve it so that the cake is at its most beautiful when served.
