Notes

This is typically Nordic and there are several variations of this. This one is super easy and very fast. It can be served with almost any poached fatty fish, smoked fish, cold meats and fish, some recipes for roast lamb or meat pates.
It's purpose is to lighten other foods that are rich and fatty much like cornichons do with pate's. Here it's  a traditional accompaniment to poached salmon and other poached fish.
