Pasta salad with raisins and fish

Because today's recipe I prepared with Pangasius fillets, and because I respect my readers, I will start by making some clarifications about this kind of fish.
The Internet is buzzing with counter articles, so I think most of you know that this species has become very controversial for several years now. For those who don't know, the reasons are various: it is said that due to the pollution in the Mekong River where they live, they are fish full of bacteria and poisons and that they are injected with hormones to accelerate their growth. Unfortunately, many Europeans believed them.
The whole scandal related to this species arose in France (the peak, not in Australia, Canada or America where it is still a popular species today), when the business of French fishermen started to go very badly with the appearance of this fish on the market.
Pangas (Pangasius, as we know it) is a variety with many advantages: it has a meat that melts in your mouth, it usually sells fillets and is cleaned of bones and besides, it has only 90 calories / 100 g. When the price is attractive, it is clear the reason for its popularity, but also for the war and the manipulation of the masses. The strange thing is that nowhere is an analysis bulletin presented, and the fact that, however, the marketing of this fish has not been banned anywhere, not even in France.
In 2011, Pangasius was 6th in the "Top 10 Consumed Seafood" of the "National Fisheries Institute", this top being based on the tonnage of fish sold.
That being said, the choice is yours.
And now let's move on to the recipe.

The menu of Jesus' last supper with the 12 Apostles is no secret. Miguel Angel Almodovar, a culinary art specialist, has written a book claiming that Jesus, the apostles, his mother, and Mary Magdalene bought me a salad of bitter herbs based on celery. The second course was fried fish, along with sweet and sour sauce made of olive oil, honey, vinegar and wine, finely chopped walnuts and dates. The main dish was lamb or goat, as stated in Chapter 12 of the Book of Exodus.

Tuna is one of the tastiest types of fish to choose from. Due to its versatility, we can include it in various recipes, from salads to pasta, tarts and meatballs, to meatballs and soups.

Researchers have recently discovered that it contains an unusual form of selenium, named selenonein. This compound works as a antioxidants, giving him protection against free radical damage on his own red blood cells.

Another unique element is that selenonein binds to compounds Mercury from the body of the fish and reduces the risk of problems associated with this metal harmful.

Pasta salad with raisins and fish - Recipes

I really like the Dutch fish salad, which can be found in hypermarkets, but I hadn't thought that I could make something similar at home.

Inspired by the recipe on the label, I set to work and used:

  • 3-4 pieces of marinated fish (you can buy it already marinated), 200 gr sliced ​​olives, 300 gr sour cream, a little butter, 2-3 tablespoons flour, 1 glass milk.

I put the butter, milk, and flour on low heat. When the composition became consistent I also put sour cream.
I cut the marinated fish into pieces, put it in a bowl and mixed it with the sauce and the olives.

It wasn't exactly like the one at the store, but it turned out very good. Worth a try!

Light, summer salads

- Boil the pasta in a bowl with water and salt. We boil them according to the instructions on the package.
- Drain them and put them in a bowl.
- Then mix the pasta with the tomatoes cut in half, olives, mozzarella, corn kernels and arugula leaves. Since it is a light, summer salad, we do not have exact amounts of ingredients, we have the freedom to juggle them depending on what we like best. For the offer from Penny inspired us, we added more olives.
- Finish everything with a drizzle of olive oil and a few strips of grana padano or parmesan and serve cold salad, along with your favorite wine or a fresh lemonade.

Salad with oranges, pomegranate and olives

- Peel the oranges, removing the white membrane. We cut them into rounds and store them in a bowl.

- Peel the pomegranate in half and sprinkle its seeds over the oranges.

- Add sliced ​​onions - we need a not very hot onion, which gives a subtle flavor to the salad - and olives.

- Top with chopped mint leaves and, optionally, coriander seeds crushed in a mortar.

- Season with a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil.

- Let everything marinate in the fridge.

- After the flavors have intertwined, we serve the cold salad in individual plates: a treat for the hot summer days!
