Karrysalat - Danish Curry Salad

Karrysalat – Danish Curry Salad

I never liked Danish Karrysalat until I made a homemade version to serve at my Danish Christmas luncheon. You may ask, why did I make it in the first place if I knew I didn’t like it. Well traditionally Karrysalat is a classic topping for marinated herring and marinated herring is a “must” at any self-respecting Danish Christmas luncheon table. And when I tasted my homemade Karrysalat I was instantly hooked because it is so much better than the store-bought kind. Like I mentioned, it’s is served with marinated herring on top of Rugbrød (dark Rye bread) but I could eat it on top of just about any kind of lunch meat. This is super delicious and I recommend that you whip up a batch immediately and enjoy. 🙂

Smørrebrød med Sild

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.
