in the oven

150 g fresh salmon

pinch of sea salt

saffron*

chili flakes*

fennel seeds*

dash of lemon juice

dash of olive oil

honey/agave syrup

pepper

one small red onion cut in wedges

4-5 asparagus cut in half

rinse and cut of the hard ends of the asparagus, then cut in half. put the salmon on a quite large piece of oven foil. put a little bit of saffron, fennel seeds, chili flakes and a pinch of sea salt in a mortar and pound. spread on top of the salmon together with a few turns with the pepper grinder. drizzle some olive oli and honey/syrup on top. add the onion wedges and roll up the foil to make a small, closed package. put the package on a tray together with the asparagus and som olive oil. bake in the oven (225°c, 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon). you might have to take out the asparagus a bit earlier than the fish, so keep an eye on it.

* a tip is to use this spice mix instead – it’s lovely.

fresh

a bunch of green leafs of choice (I used pot salad)

one avocado

a few toasted walnuts

lemon olive oil

white balsamico vinegar

rinse the salad, half the avocado and then peel and cut it in slices. spread out the vegetables on a plate and add the salmon and asparagus. finish off with walnuts, lemon olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Midsummer calls for pickled herring.

From past years.

i’m off to Åland to celebrate midsummer. to eat pickeled herring, potatoes, strawberries and drink schnapps. this is my absolute favorit pickled herring. my grand mother introduced it to me a couple of years ago and we fell in love. the recipe originates from the southern parts of Sweden, Skåne. apart from being delicious it’s also incredibly easy to make.

Brantevikssill 

250 g pre-pickled herring
2,5 dl sugar
1 tsp salt
20 pounded white pepper kernels
20 pounded jamaica pepper kernels (“kryddpeppar”)
1 onion, chopped
1  red onion, chopped
1 tbsp lemon pepper (“citron peppar)
1 bay leaf
1 bunch dill, chopped
1 dl vinegar essence 12% (“ättikssprit”)
take out the herrings from the pickle, cut in desired pieces and let dry for a bit. prepare the remaining ingredients and mix the spices with salt and sugar. in a clean glass jar layer the herring, onion, dill and spice mixture until finished. put in the fridge and let sit for a day (or preferably two!). there is no need to add any liquid since this will be taken care of by itself. put it on the buffé table for midsummer. or serve up with some fresh potatoes, good hard bread with butter and salty cheese.
