Pan-fried flounder (skrubber) with a butter/capers sauce

Another danish summer classic. My friend Jacob bought the fish straight from the local fisherman the same morning.. I just added the butter 😉

The fish

  • 1 Frech caught flounder pr. person
  • 1 Egg
  • Milk
  • Breadcrumbs

Clean the fish and season with salt & pepper. Dip in the milk/egg mixture, then the seasoned breadcrumbs. Fry on medium heat until crisp in 50:50 oil and butter.

The sauce

  • capers
  • lemon
  • Salt & Pepper

Melt the butter until brown. Add plenty of capers. Season with lemon, salt & pepper.

Serve with new potatoes and a fresh salad.


Chorizo Penne

Chorizo penne

I’m quite fond of fast and easy pasta dishes. The sauce can be made in the time the pasta takes to cook, so there is no excuse for a hot supper 🙂  I was going for spanish inspired flavors, as I had some chorizo lying around. To balance the salty flavor I included capers and sweet red pepper, for color some baby spinach.


  • Pasta Penne
  • Chorizo
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Baby spinach
