Simple Recipe For All Whitefish


Living in our boat is over for this summer and we are back home. However, during the following weeks I will still tell you boat life stories because so much happened during that five weeks on the boat.

Our family eats a lot of pike-perch because Henri fishes it a lot. Henri has also learned to make excellent food out of pike-perch – and also other fish species. This following recipe is one of our favourite ones. It`s simple and delicious and works for all whitefish.

Ingredients for 2 portion:

500 g pike-perch fillet (or other whitefish)

2 dl smetana (crème fraîche)

3-4 garlic cloves

One third of leek

Salt, black pepper, butter (amount depends on your taste)

  • Salt fish couple of hours before making the food.
  • Chop garlic and leek.
  • Melt some butter in a frying pan.
  • Fry garlic and leek about 1-2 minutes. Take them aside for a while.
  • Add some butter and put the fish fillets on the frying pan. Let them grill about 2-3 minutes each side (depending on the size).
  • Add garlic, leek and smetana and let food stew for about 5-7 minutes.
  • Serve e.g with salad, potatoes or fried vegetables.

Fish, salt, black pepper, butter, garlic, leek and smetana are the only ingredients in this recipe


Fish needs first and foremost salt to be delicious


First you grill the fish on a pan


Dad is cooking and hungry mom and daughter are waiting


Finally you add smetana and let it all stew


After about 20 minutes the lunch is ready!
