This is a classical Seto salad. Traditionally it is made with herring, but I got freshly smoked Peipsi Lake vendace …
Look at this! See, if it is not appetizing : ) 🙂
A combination of strawberries and fish may seem strange. But sour and sweet berries complement saltness of fish very well. The onion adds a structure and a sparkle.
And rye bread. This is just a base. The heart of this salad.
- Cleanse fish. Herring or other smoked and salty fish
- Toast rye bread and cut into slices
- Cut strawberries into slices
- Chop chives
- Chop (red) onion. If you are going to use “white” onion, I suggest to marinate it for a couple of the minutes in strawberry juice. For salad dressing
season sour cream with pepper and (taste your fish !!) with salt.
And some horseradish makes it even better…
