3 from 1 – Swedish tapas

These smörrebröd are perfect for lunch or as a starter. These pieces are part of what we serve when celebrating Midsummer or Xmas. The difference is that we at Midsummer and Xmas don’t settle with one snaps.

Terrine of salmon

  • 100 g smoked salmon
  • 1 green apple, chopped into small squares
  • 1 dl creme fraiche
  • 1 dl creme cheese
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1/2 grated fresh horseradish
  • 1 spring onion chopped into slices
  • salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients with a spoon. Spread it on a plastic wrap and roll it to a cylinder. Put in the freezer for half an hour. It is then easier to cut into nice pieces. Serve with cucumber, dill and some lemon.

Creme of smoked herring

  • 2 smoked herrings
  • 1 pickled gherkin, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 dl creme fraiche
  • 2 tbsp chopped dill
  • salt, pepper

Mix all ingredients in a blender. Serve with some pumpernickel or  crisp bread.

Gubbröra

  • 6 fillets of anchovy (Swedish style)
  • 3 boiled egg
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp Kalles Kaviar (typical Swedish caviar that is not necessary)
  • 1 dl creme fraiche
  • chives
  • dill

Chop everything into fine pieces and mix with a spoon. Serve with pumpernickel or crisp bread.

To the tapas you should drink a cold beer and a nice Aquavit. Don’t forget to sing a snaps song!
