Mr Salmon and his best friends

I am not a big fan of cooked or fried salmon. Cured, raw, salted or smoked however makes me drool. I love the combination of the fat fish with some salt and sour ingredients. In this dish, which was served during our pop up NordenBerlin, the cured salmon is matched by yolk, pickled onions, Swedish anchovies, horse radish, dill and chives. To add another texture we served it with bread crumbles. It is a very typical Swedish dish with the saltiness from the anchovies, sourness from the onions and the fat dill-marinated salmon.BerlinNord (72 von 107)
