Yesterday was a big day for Swedish people, the Eurovision Final, in Sweden. As many might know Sweden is very obsessed with Eurovision haha. We usually always watch it, it’s just a tradition you have from when you were younger. And I have noticed that it’s as popular here in Iceland too, I like it.

We were away the hole day yesterday at the summer cabin and came home quite late so we just decided in the last minute to invite our friends for some Eurovision dinner, so this was actually a very spontaneous dinner. And it turned out to be delicious.

OUR DINNER:

Grilled chicken with coriander and garlic  

800 g Chicken thigh filé
Metal skewers

Marinade: 

1 dl olive oil
3 tablespoon of light soya sauce (kikkoman)
2 tablespoon of honey
2-3 pressed garlic cloves
1 dl of chopped fresh coriander
salt and pepper

Mix all the ingredients with the chicken and let it stay in the fridge for about 30-60 min. Put it on the metal skewers and start bbq. I prefer to use chicken thigh filé instead of regular chicken filé, it gets so much more tender.

Mexican grilled corn

Grill the corn and lemon on a hot grill (buy pre-cooked corn). Grate the Parmesan in another bowl. While the corn is still warm slather it with cream cheese and then turn it in grated parmesan. Squeeze the grill lemon juice over the corns and season with chilli powder and salt. ‘You will love this’.

Fried asparagus

Heat up a pan with olive oil, fry the asparagus and add some green pesto. ‘Easy and a perfect side dish’.

Cold garlic sauce

2,5 dl creme fraiche
2 tablespoon of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of honey
1-2 pressed garlic cloves
salt and pepper
olive oil

Mix everything together and store in the fridge. ‘Perfect for the bbq table’.

BON APITIT!!
