It’s been a while since I’ve made a piece of traditional Danish Smørrebrød. This is marinated Herring which is not only super delicious but also high in Omega-3 fatty acids and therefor good for you. Herring is immensely popular in Scandinavia and it can always be found on a festive luncheon menu. You can buy Herring in different marinates such as mustard, cream, curry, wine or spiced sauces. For this particular Smørrebrød I used Herring in a wine sauce, which I adore, and I paired it with onions, capers and some wonderful fresh dill.
Smørrebrød – med Sild
1 slice Rugbrød (dark Rye bread)
butter for bread, optional
marinated herring in wine sauce
red onion, diced
Finely dice red onion, set aside. Butter bread if desired. Place lettuce on bread and top with marinated herring. Arrange red onions, dill and capers in a decorative fashion. Smørrebrød is enjoyed with a cold beer and Akvavit snaps. Enjoy!
