I’m an awful cook.. I can’t follow a step-by-step recipe 🙁
Normally, I just cook my own way.. and chuck in whatever I want that’s available, and it turns out fine. Today, I decided to follow a recipe for once, and follow it exactly, and it was HORRIFIC!!! The recipe came from some magazine, New Idea or Womans Day or something – it was for Salmon
I mashed up the cooked potatos and stirred salmon and butter in as dictated. It was all slushy and I was supposed to roll it in breadcrumbs. Ended up so slushy and wet that I had to slop it into the pan to cook! And the sauce? Whisk egg yolk and lemon juice, then add olive oil. It tasted like… battery acid or something. Totally inedible and had to scrape all the sauce off the cakes 🙁
Fortunately though, the salmon & potato cakes weren’t too bad. They were quite nice as I used chilli salmon, so it gave it a bit of a kick. Still a bit slushy, but edible and quite tasty. All in all, that recipe is SCREWED UP! They must have gotten their measurements wrong or they’re just a dodgy magazine with inedible dodgy recipes. Ugh. Will never get recipes from those kind of trashy gossip mags ever again.
