Sauteed Pickled Herring And Potato Patty (“Pommes De Terre Macaire” With A Twist)

>
>
Once  a regular item on a menu, I have not seen pommes macaire on a menu for many years. What a shame, since they are such a great dish and so easy to prepare. Another thing that baffles me is that whenever I ask folk’s if they like pickled herring, the answer is usually no. Then how come I  see  pickled herring  and/or  roll mops  on just about every supermarket shelf? Somebody must be buying 🙂

So when I had some leftover baked potatoes, I first thought of making another twice baked potato, but I cooked that often lately so I wanted to come up with something different and yummy, so here it is : Herring and potato patty, served with spicy potatoes and wasabi.

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !

Italy Meets Sweden : “Coppa Ham & Janssons Frestelse”

>
>
If  there is one potato dish that I don’t want to live without, it is surely janssons frestelse. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch , dinner and anytime between. My version is slightly different from the traditional, since I like to use garlic paste in the mixture, as well as finely grated asiago cheese both in the mixture and sprinkled on top of the breadcrumbs. As for the fish, I use both pickled herring and / or anchovies, whatever is available from the cupboard. Frestelse can be perfectly paired with many food items, as well as eaten by them self as a solid foundation for a bit of alcohol on a party night, as I have encountered them the first time so many years ago (1973) in Torekov, Sweden.

” Smörgåsbord “

.
.
Where else than in my house can you find a Smörgåsbord for one ?
Smörgåsbord is a scandinavian buffet, usually consisting of seafood,
meats, starches, preserves, bread’s; sometimes using both hot and cold dishes,
sometimes, for a more simple version, cold dishes only.
Here is the version I enjoyed for dinner last night :
