Creamy Tuscan Salmon Recipe
Today we are together with the Tuscany style creamy salmon recipe, one of the recipes that surprised me. Usually when I see a recipe, I know right away whether I'm going to like it or not just by looking at the ingredients. So far, there have been very few recipes that have misled me. One of those few recipes is this creamy Tuscan salmon recipe. However, I do not think that this misconception stems from a lack of knowing yourself. I think I fell victim to the prejudices imposed on me by society. If you are a Turk, you know that you should not eat fish with milk and dairy products. Well, do you know that this is not quite true? Probably yes. So, after learning this, were you able to overcome your prejudice? As you can see, I could not.
Why shouldn't fish and dairy products be consumed together?
First of all, let's get to the root of the issue and find out where this not-so-accurate prejudice we have comes from. I used to think that if I consumed fish dishes and milk together, I would immediately get food poisoning. Later, this information was updated with the information that I could get food poisoning if I consumed milk together with stale fish. But I lived for many years without knowing the real reason for this. Then one day I learned that some people have histamine intolerance. While I was researching what histamine is and which foods it contains, I suddenly had a great enlightenment. Afterwards, when the research I did directly on the subject confirmed me, I started to think about what I don't know or know wrong. Let me now share with you what I have learned.
Histamine is an amine found naturally in the human body. It can be found in many foods and can also be synthesized by the body. Some people's bodies become unable to break down histamine over time, and this is called histamine intolerance. Fermented foods, milk and dairy products, some fruits and vegetables, and aged/stale foods have high histamine content. People with histamine intolerance should not consume foods containing histamine. Now let's combine and summarize this information. If you have histamine intolerance, you should not consume milk/yoghurt and stale fish together, which are high in histamine. When you consume too much histamine, you may experience attacks that include symptoms similar to food poisoning, such as diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. If you do not have histamine intolerance, consuming these two groups of food together is not a problem. But if the fish is not stale as you think, but is actually spoiled, you can get food poisoning regardless of the milk you drink with it.
You're still not completely relieved, I know. Because I went through the same path. We have been brought up with such serious warnings about this issue since our childhood that it is not easy to get out of its influence, but of course it is not impossible either. Seeing you are not poisoned by eating foods containing fish and dairy products may help you overcome this prejudice.
Creamy Tuscan salmon recipe is a perfect start for this. I think it's also a wonderful dinner to welcome guests. Although salmon is a valuable food that can be served to guests, simple dishes such as oven-roasted salmon with vegetables are not preferred because they give the impression that they do not require much effort. But even though creamy Tuscan salmon is prepared in such a simple way, it creates the feeling of an elaborate meal due to its elegance and taste. Therefore, it is very suitable for guest tables. Parmesan cheese hasselback potatoes or erdapfelsalat will go very well with it. If you say "I don't want to take the easy way out of everything, I have time." you can make heart beet ravioli as well.
I realize there are ingredients in the recipe that you may be asked to substitute, but I recommend sticking to each ingredient for the best flavor.
