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
  • Salt & Pepper

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

  • Butter
  • 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.



Fish Cakes And Slaw

Nothing screams summer like a nice fish cake. My version includes cod, prawns and chorizo served on homemade slaw.

The Fish Cakes

  • Cod fillets
  • Prawns
  • Chorizo
  • Onion
  • Eggs
  • Flour (small amount)
  • Flatleaf parsley
  • Fennel seeds
  • Lemon zest and juice
  • Salt & Pepper

Cut everything into small pieces(but not so small you cant tell it’s actual fish). Beat together with the egs and some flour. Season with the  fennel seeds, lemon zest / juice and a large handfull of chopped parsley. Shape into nice big cakes and fry them gently in plenty of butter.


The Slaw

  • Homemade mayo (i will get the recipe up here someday)
  • Fine pickles
  • Oxheart cabbage
  • Fennel
  • Carrots
  • Spring onion
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt & Pepper

First create the base dressing by combining the mayo with the fine pickels (half / half), season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Cut the veg into small strips and coat in the dressing.
