I have had a long fascination with slightly retro feel packaging, and used to buy tins just because I found the lettering or layout interesting. I like tinned fish packaging a lot more than using tinned fish in recipes I don't have that may recipes but might try to illustrate a nice fishcake recipe next
This is my late Mum's recipe for potted smoked trout, the recipe description is taken straight out of an old file that she kept her recipes in. I wanted to keep it as it originally was because the file is very precious to me.
Dad caught the trout as he loved to go fly fishing and I have very happy memories of watching him cast his rod while I lazed on the banks of the river watching and dreaming.
I was never very keen on trout, but the one way I liked it was when Dad hot smoked it, in a smoker he made himself out of an old cake tin. This was my favorite way to eat it when Mum made the pate, its delicious spread on crusty bread or toast.
Well, I thought I was done drawing panels for this challenge...until my husband went fishing with his friend. The fishing buddy caught a salmon and brought over some cut pieces of fish for my husband to smoke. I now attribute the inspiration for two panels to my husband. Thanks, Scott!
My parents used to make steamed fish almost every week, and its always been one of my favorite dishes (my family is from Hong Kong so we eat a lot of seafood). Now that me and my brother aren't home anymore, they try to make it every time we come back, usually with my favorite fish (pompano). Its one of the few meals we eat as a family, and, to let us know when food is ready, my parents will call me and my brother down from our room (hence the Chinese characters). This dish tastes the best with white jasmine rice!
