This isn’t really a recipe. I would be fooling myself as well as everyone else if I made out it was.
But it is good.
I recently took a work trip to Sweden. I love Sweden. A lot. Not as much as my friend Emma, who is like totally obsessed and hangs out in Sweden just so she can bump into Alexander Skaarsgard (that was just a blatant plug of her blog by the way). But I do love it a lot. It’s clean. People look healthy. And I love herring. So Sweden is a good place. And they serve this, it seems, at breakfast. Well they did in my hotel in Gothenburg anyway.
It’s basically 3 boiled eggs chopped up and mixed with lots (about 8 fillets) of tasty chopped anchovy, dill (small handful) and a bit of onion (quarter of a small onion, or two spring onions), with salt and pepper. Slathered on toast. That’s about 4 portins by the way. It’s awesome. I’m not one for sweet breakfasts. But give me a plate of eggs with bits of fish in it, or anything laden with chilli and I’m sold.
I ate this twice for breakfast over the Jubilee weekend. I can vouch for the fact that it even tastes good upon waking after having gone out dancing for 6 hours until the early hours of the morning. I used fancy smoked anchovies because they’d been sitting in my fridge up until the use by date – a whim purchase. But use whatever nice anchovies you have. It is totally awesome.
