Firstly open it outside the kitchen, wash the fish immediately with cold fresh water to remove the salt and the stinky fishy-water. Prepare the oven in the 180oC. Put them in a small griddle with extra virgin olive oil, lemon, pepper and oregano. Leave them for about 20mins. You must cook them, otherwise you will have the luck of the YouTubers.

 

at least these German guys gave a ..try!

Some upstanding Danish gentlemen trying out our national cuisine.

 

 

I have never eaten Surströmming myself, nor do I plan to anywhere in the future. However some 20 years back me and some fellow students smeared a hated teachers car with surströmming. :teethhappy:

Personally, I disagree with your opinion.

Rinsed under water, it was kinda edible. But I would politely decline the offer the next time someone brings it to a nice evening with grilled stuff and drinks. I didn't barf or something*, but it was a really unpleasant smell. And that smell sticked for a few days, thanks to someone pushing that tin off the table...

 

*) Correction: I had to barf the next morning... but... let's say... it involved the lower part of my body and a different exit hole. That was really nasty.

I had some last summer. You could describe the taste as... a fart of a two-day-old carcass. 

 

My swedish friend told me it should be eaten with new potatoes and buttersauce and lots of alcohol, but I sure ain't gonna try it again, ever. You can do all sorts of things with lots of alcohol. Don't mean you should.

I thought of it as kind of fine. Mostly because what is standardly served with it is good and makes the surströmming mostly add a salty flavour.

Eating surströmming and nothing else is not how you are expected to do it.
Kind of like eating kidneys raw and claim you have tasted the English food culture.

This really, sort like tabasco sauce, or any other very spicey flavour adder. You don't eat it pure, it's meant to be mixed in with other things to get the most out of it.

So does just adding salt and it does it without stinking your house out for a week.

Lots of alcohol? So they kind of hope to pass out from drinking before the taste hits them? :trollface:

Not being fussy or anything but why would you put the extra virgin in an oven? Regular will do just fine.

He forgot the onions, no wonder it did not taste good.

Contrary to what the word implies, does a "delicacy" not mean it's "delicious"...

It prefers the term "fermented".
