Viking Cooking School Continued...



Our class was an appetizer class. The top one is grilled salmon skewers with a Japanese five-herb marinade and a miso-ginger dipping sauce. I'm not usually a big fan of salmon, but those things were good! The bottom left is shrimp and artichoke hearts in a  herbal vinaigrette sauce. And the last photo is curry chicken salad in phylo cups. I usually do not eat chicken, but I had to taste my own preparation.

I would definitely make the salmon skewers again, I think you could even use the same marinade and sauce with a different type of fish and make it as a main dish. It was a great idea for a birthday present and I hope to take another class sometime!

They all look great and I am sure taste great. I dont like salmon, but I would try that one.

What a fun thing to do! It all looks beautiful and tasty!

Jacob said...

I'll take the salmon - those look good. Pass on the rest. But what a great time putting all this together!

Did hubby do his own thing or did he assist you with these by staying out of the way?

La vache, nous voilà bien éloignés des vikings! Ca a l'air délicieux ! Je suis sortie de table il n'y a pas longtemps et voilà que tu me redonnes de l'appétit !

Jacob: They actually divide you into groups of four. So my husband and I cooked with a pair of sisters. They were quite nice and we enjoyed working with them!

Ciel: Viking is manufacturer of professional grade kitchens (ranges, ovens, etc.). I'm not sure they have any connection to those old Swedish dudes! ;-)

I was just asking myself about this Viking cuisine which doesn't look Viking at all. Thanks for explaining, yours appetizers look... appetizing!

Hi, thanks for your comment! You are right there is a lot of emptynes on my blog, but it is not a personal issue. My agenda is so full, maybe it is a desire for more space/ emptyness :)
Great that you joined for a cooking lesson, but the recepy doesn't sound Scandinavian with the Japanese marinade.
