Stuffed GARBAGE leaves taste far better than they sound!! in-fact the title is just rubbish, as they are actually stuffed CABAGE leaves. But that's one of the joys of being married to a foreigner; one small substitute of a G in place of a C, add a R and my healthy, well-balanced, lovingly prepared meal turns into a joke!
So you will need:-
6 cabbage leaves blanched in boiling salted water for no more than 3 minutes.
300g of fish (I used salmon)
1 small onion
herbs (tarragon or dill work great)
2 tbsp of cream
400g tinned tomatoes
S & P
Chop the onion and herbs. Take off the skin and any bones from the salmon and mix (in a mixer), add onions, herbs, cream and S & P.
Share this mixture among the 6 cabbage leaves, and secure them closed with tooth picks.
Poach for approx 45 mins in the tinned tomatoes.
We had ours with rice. And the kids will now hence-forth know this meal as Garbage leaves! - Merci mon amour!
