Inlagd sill

Inlagd sill () Swedish – “Pickled herring”. This fishy favourite remains the basis of every typical Swedish buffet (smorgasbord). With an abundance of herring in both the North and Baltic Seas, Swedes have been pickling since the Middle Ages, mainly as a way of preserving the fish for storage and transportation. Pickled herring comes in a variety of flavours – mustard, onion, garlic and dill, to name a few – and is often eaten with boiled potatoes, sour cream, chopped chives, sharp hard cheese, sometimes boiled eggs and, of course, crisp bread.
