Zebra with boat potatoes, caramelized onions and grilled pineapple

If you have not tasted zebra, I can highly recommend it.

Just across the border into Sweden, you will find a number of shops selling a number of exotic animals and it is of course easy to be tempted. I always buy exciting ingredients first and then I hope I can google myself on how to use it afterwards.

Zebra is fried or grilled like beef, so that it can be left at room temperature for approx. 30 minutes before frying. This is so that the pan does not cool down and make the meat cook instead of frying. Season with salt and pepper just before frying. Brown the fillet quickly in the pan. Place the fillet in a fireproof dish, I have put it together with the caramelized onion, 3 cloves of garlic and a sprig of fresh rosemary. Insert a baking thermometer and place in the oven at 125 degrees. The zebra is ready when it has a core temperature of 54 degrees. Let it rest for a few minutes before cutting into it.

The boat potatoes:

Drizzle a little olive oil in a long pan, divide the potatoes into boats, put them in the long pan, add salt and pepper and possibly. other spices you fancy, e.g. peppers, drizzle over a little more oil, mix well and put them in the oven on full blast. When they start to get a little color, turn them down to 200 degrees and let them fry until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

The onion:

5 medium onions

5 teaspoons olive oil

5 teaspoons butter

1 teaspoon brown sugar (if you want the onion to finish faster)

Cut the onion into slices. Heat olive oil and butter in a thick-bottomed sauté pan. Add the onion slices and stir it together with the fat. Spread the onion evenly over the pan and let it boil, stirring occasionally.

When it starts to get color, the heat is reduced to medium low so that the onion does not burn or dry out.

Sprinkle a little salt over the onion after 10 minutes, and if you want, you can add a little sugar to help with the caramelization process. A trick to prevent the onion from drying out while it is boiling is to add a little water.

Let the onion cook for 30 minutes to 1 hour, stirring occasionally. When the onion starts to stick to the pan, let it turn a little brown.


Cut off the peel of a pineapple and cut out the hard one in the middle. There are excellent utensils in the grocery store that make this a breeze. Cut the pineapple into slices, sprinkle over some honey and sprinkle over some finely chopped chili. Grill the pineapple for a few minutes on both sides.

Serve zebra with boat potatoes, the caramelized onion and pineapple.
