Shopping Around The World In April…..Seafood Recipe

April is our turn to host the Shopping Around The World for Piglove.  Simply put The Canadian Cat’s URL in your post with your favourite seafood dish.  Piglove’s URL would be nice to include too.


SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI……ORANGE

Hey Kali how’s the ole gal doing?  She’s OK….she’s watching and talking to the TVThe talking to the TV tells me she’s getting better.  What happened anyway Shoko…do you know?  Well, listening to dad and mom yak about her knee, it seems when they went to Omaha Beach after meeting up with Phenny and his mom and dad, mom fell down.  Really!!  Good ole mom, when in doubt, have a bath….sorry, that’s for us not mom.  For mom it would be….MAKE A TURKEY OF YOURSELF!

This picture  was taken moments before mom stood up, heard a crack and fell on her face.  Da Phenny knew it was coming and wanted to get out of there fast so is dragging his mom behind him. MOL.

When they got to London they caught a virus….both of them.  This knocked them so low that they could barely be seen on our cat radar, but I get ahead of myself as all of the residents at the house in Normandy were involved in fixing our recipe of the month for Shopping Around The World.

We peek in at the activities In the house in Normandy that day.

Seems mom was the bossy dudette for our recipe of Fish Cakes made with salmon.  She says supervisor, we say bossy.

Ingredients:

1 tin Sockeye Salmon….150 grams $5.25 in Canadian Dollars

1 onion…. 1.29 euro a pound , $ 1.38

8 small potatoes……very small…1.99 for a kilo,  $$ 2.13 euro

some butter….in cupboard

A true international dinner.

Directions:

1/ Dice onion but not too small.  Throw a teaspoon of butter in frying pan to brown onion.  Put onion in frying pan and cook at medium-high…stirring frequently or your onion will be black as my face. MOL

2/ While the onion is browning, cut up the potatoes and boil them in a pot.

The potatoes are boiling and the onion is sautéing as demonstrated by our model Broomhilda Brush, a charming woman.

With your other hand chunk up the sockeye salmon after you have removed the juice and given it to the pet at your elbow.                                                                 As you see, aforementioned pet is helping Broomhilda get the salmon juice out of the can and telling us to flake off, it’s his juice.

3/ The potatoes are done so smash them like this foreign resident of the house.

                                                                         4/ Turn onions off at this time.

5/ Add salt and pepper to taste and about 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs.

6/  Combine smashed potatoes, browned onions. salt, pepper, breadcrumbs and of course the salmon in bowl.  Mix with hands.  It tastes better this way.

7/ Make patties with your hands.  Put 2 tablespoons butter in frying pan and turn the temperature to high.  Watch constantly. Don’t forget to place the patties in pan. After about 5 minutes turn the cakes over and do the same on the other side.  You want to brown them on either side….not burn them.  DONE!                                                             These are some scrumptious looking fish cakes. Mmmm…perhaps some more potatoes would be wise next time.

A wonderful meal that we all had part in making.  What? Mr. Brush  didn’t do anything?                                                                   Oh yes he did!  Mr. Brush appears to have eaten a little more than the chair could hack.  The chair broke but Phenny was there to the rescue, moving so fast he’s a blur.

Thank you for joining us for April’s Seafood Recipe.  From all of us: Mr. and Mrs. Brush, dad, mom and Da Phenny we bid you a fun and happy day.

Broomhilda Brush and Mr. Brush aka Phenny’s mom and dad.

It is also Sunday Selfie Day with The Cat On My Head blog.  Well, we just couldn’t miss another Selfie Day so I took it upon myself to show one and all the beret mom brought me back from Paris for me.  Kali got one that is exactly the same.  Where’s the French treats mom….trade ya the beret for the goodies.  MOL                                                         Am I not one sophisticated kitty?  I asked for a green beret but mom didn’t think I deserve a green one.  I tell you…I’m not so sure about that woman.

Please stop by The Cat On My Head and view our friends trying to show their best side.  It’s a riot.                                                             Mom this was a long blog.  I’m bone tired but a little peckish.  Are there any treats in the big Paris bag?  There are?  What do ya mean I have to share them with Kali.  What did she do?  Oh alright if I HAVE to.

    Now that sounds a fab recipe, and simple enough my peep could even make it…. mind you it does involve frying things so best we give a miss! Hope your moms knee is feeling better now, and the beret looks delightful, a very continental flair!

      It is rather simple, I must agree. You must keep your pawrents away from potential hazards? This is a tough job Erin as they must eat….they can always eat it raw. Ugh! It wouldn’t taste very good but the fish would be moreish.

    I really enjoyed the recipe. Food is, and should be, fun!

    Yes, the juice off the salmon always is reserved for the deserving furbuddies of the household!

    Tuna gets the same treatment. My kitty boys Andy and Dougy love, love, love the water off the stuff, but turn up their noses at the actual albacore. What??! I guess they are too used to getting their meat in pate form to mess with the real deal.

      Really? You guys turn your noses up at the albacore tuna too? We love the juice but the actual tuna is not our cuppa nip. Mom says there are kitties starving all over the world that would love it but her chatterings don’t work. We don’t like that cwap mom…now take it away. You can have it.

    Your poor Mom! I hope both your folks are feeling better. I am not into seafood, but my hubby loves salmon so I can make these for him. You look gorgeous in your beret, so pretty Shoko.

      You think, Dharth? It should have fish stuck all over it, then I’d be crazy bout it. MOL Yep they fly to France and then went to the UK. They were gone like FOREVER! Almost 3 weeks. We were left alone to forage for food. MOL I know you don’t believe me cause I don’t look like I lost any weight. MOL I do have a dramatic licence and must use it at times.
      Your Ladymum is a klutz like mom too! Imagine 2 of them and they’re both Canadian. MOL Hope her knee gets better soon. Mom says it really hurts but the pain is fading now. It’s only when she turns her leg certain ways that it hurts.

      They will be fine. They wore themselves out and were a great attacking spot for a virus. The fishcakes are good according to mom….I’ll take the salmon and they can have the juice. MOL

      A good belly laugh makes life a little easier to deal with. These fish cakes are so easy…it’s pretty hard to get them to taste bad. Unless one burns the crap out of them because one is on the computer. Think it’s happened before? Yeah! You can add celery, green/red peppers and peas to the cakes….really whatever turns your crank.

    Oh Shoko and Kali you came up with a great salmon recipe – and it’s already tried out by the traveling peeps in Normandy so we know it MUST be delish! Obviously Mr. Brush had one too many bites of those salmon cakes and broke the chair…..Sorry about your Mom’s fall AND also sorry they insisted on bringing back a London Bug from their trip. That’s not the right kind of souvenir!!! Your beret is fab though – it’s definitely your color! Sending hugs for health.

    Love, Teddy

    Oh Yum! those fishcakes not only sound, but look num-o-lishious!!! I shall have to make some – when I have company. Without any cats to share in the salmon, there is too much for me. But Kozmo, Jo Jo Dad and Cinnamon will be here next week! Wait! That means I could make a double (or perhaps even a triple) batch and they would ALL get eaten! I am glad your pawrents are feeling better…I am now over what ever the bug is your pawrents brought to my house.
    Love Barb

      We had a vegetarian restaurant close to us and I would go to lunch with my vegetarian friend. We found this chicken strips….vegetarian of course and they were delish. I bought a bag from the restaurant and tried them on hubby without telling him they had no meat. He loved them and gobbled the all up. He was amazed when he found out they had no meat and still wanted them. The restaurant closed and I have never tasted chicky strips as good as those.

    Not even a crumb, Binky. Next time we have tuna or salmon we’ll think of you. I know…you can’t taste it that way but the long journey across the pond would probably make the tuna smell ‘hi u hum.’
