Herring

Sometimes (not always) it is ridiculously easy to be healthy. With a little help from local bakeries and fisheries; moist, delicious rye bread (from Charles&De) and elegantly spiced herring (Utsira-sild from Haugesund´s Sildakongen). Serve with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and a steaming hot cup of joe.

In Norway herring is very popular around Christmas, but herring is something that could and should be enjoyed all year. Healthy, easy and good! Decorate and lift the flavor with dill or parsley.

Or how about your own mustard herring?

Or you can make them a bit bigger (and a little less risky) and serve on a plate with cutlery as an appetizer. Either way; delicious!
