“Easter lunch” – Danish herring

April 10, 2012

From the start of a traditional danish lunch; herring with raw onions and a little glass of snaps. Of all the many different kinds of herring, these 3 can be found in every supermarket. Same thing with the snaps, there are many different types, and with different content of alcohol.

      It surely is a very cozy moment, when the lunch start, herring is ready to eat and the glasses raised to say skål, welcome and good appetite. 🙂

    I heard that herring was popular in Northen part of Europe.Do you eat it every week?

      It depends on the situation, herring is a must at a traditional get together lunch, beside that some people eat a bite every day, some only now and then. I suppose the answer will be “Yes- on average” then. 🙂 Fresh sild is not that expensive, and it can be roasted for dinner. It is an old traditional food.
