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.

Mix everything but the shallots. Heat the shallots and let them simmer until they are al dente. Remove and cool down. Cut into quarters and add the mixture. Let is soak for at least 2 hours before you serve it.
