Pickled herring is a real Scandinavian classic. This recipe has a summer approach with fresh vegetables. The Swedish name is actually “sommarsill”. The crisp bread is a fantastic pairing with pickled foods.
This cold fish terrine is delicious made with salmon, but you can use any fish you like. The mustard and dill sauce pairs wonderfully with the salmon. You can also make a crème fraiche based sauce with some dill and fish roe in it.
The herring pickle in this recipe is a “matjes” which is similar to the anchovy taste. The cake is perfect on a smorgasbord or on its own as a starter. You can top the cake with any roe you like!
A different take on the ordinary shrimp cocktail. Here you have a yummy recipe for mayonnaise too!
This beetroot salad is a Swedish favourite to have on sandwiches or on a smorgasbord! It pairs well with pork products such as ham or with meatballs. In this recipe you have it on its own with some crispy flat bread for a Scandinavian take on tacos.
You can change the Västerbotten cheese for any cheese you like. The soft flat breads are very popular in Sweden and you can use it to roll with ham, salmon or salad too!
