    • Salmon lasagne

      Hello everyone
      I thought I'd share the yummiest recipe for salmon lasagne. I came across it on a Scandinavian blog I follow, and it's so awesome that it needs to be shared with all Aussies!

      Fish-base
      500 g salmon fillets

      Bake the salmon fillets with some salt and pepper on 200 degrees C for around 15 minutes. Continue with the other steps while the salmon is in the oven.


      Spinach-layer:


      500 g frozen spinach
      3 tablespoons butter
      1 finely chopped red onion
      2 stems of chopped spring onion
      A pinch of salt

      Mix ingredients in a pot and let simmer for a few minutes

      Lasagna-plates
      I used the recipe from my lasagne-post:aussie-lowcarb-living.blogspot.com.au/2012/03/lasagne.html

      Bechamel-sauce
      2 heaped tablespoons butter
      3 tablespoons flour
      500 ml full cream milk
      120 g shredded cheese
      2 gloves of garlic
      Salt and pepper

      Melt the butter in a pot, stir in flour and add the milk little by little. When thickened, add the garlic and the cheese.

      Now is the time to admit I did something very very naughty: I used white flour....(the shock! The horror!) But I reckoned it was a very small amount, and when I calculated the nutritional values (see below) it wasn't too bad. However, I'd be happy to receive some tips on what can be used in stead to get that silky, bechamel-feeling.

      Combining the layers:
      Mash the baked salmon with a fork. Place about half of the salmon in a buttered oven-safe dish.
      Place a layer of the spinach-sauce on top of the fish.
      On top of that, spread about half of the lasagne-plates.
      Cover with a layer of the bechamel-sauce.
      Add another layer: Salmon, then spinach, then bechamel sauce and lasagne-plates.
      Cover with more shredded cheese (I ended up using 90 grams). Put it into the oven and bake on 200 degrees C for around 15 minutes. Let the lasagne rest for 5 minutes before you enjoy this little piece of heaven.

      Despite the naughtiness involving white flour, the nutritional values ended up not being at all too bad:
