What would I actually cook when this epidemic is over? The classics among New Year’s Eve food are fondue, raclette or a good New Year’s Eve carp. But why not try something new and surprise your family with scrumptious caipirinha salmon all the way from your Oven.

Caipirinha salmon from your oven as Epidemic Over victory meal

Caipirinha is known by most as a delicious cocktail with white rum, cane sugar, limes and lots of ice cream. But it is precisely these ingredients that are wonderfully suited to fish dishes. So I changed the cocktail a little bit and made a caipirinha salmon out of the oven. The result was a super tasty fish, which you can serve wonderfully for a festive epidemic over victory meal. And for the non-alcoholic version, the rum can also be easily omitted. 

As a side dish, for example, wild rice and fried root vegetables fit, but also cold to the baguette the fish makes itself wonderful.
