Smetana herring is a perfect food even on sultry days, it always tastes good. It is very easy to make and you need to use your stove only to cook eggs and potatoes.
I have occasionally eaten flamed salmon and liked it a lot, but this was the first time it occurred to me that I could make it myself as well. It is really worth trying, the fish was just outstanding.
It must be at least ten years ago, when I happened to read an English cookbook in the library and found a recipe for salmon medallions prepared in a very delicious way.
Very typical Finnish food, though we usually make potato mash without celeriac. However, celeriac gives the mash just a new and nice flavor.
Some of you might be a little sceptical when it comes to fennels because of their strong anise flavour, but I really recommend tasting them at least once.
Salted raw fish is one of the real favorites of all our family, even my three daughters have stuffed themselves with it since they’ve been very, very young.
White fish is possibly the best one when made raw, but it is a very close race with salmon.
This kind of meal is something I love a lot. If you haven’t tasted fish with pine nuts before, this may be just the right time to do it.
