What's the name?

Post by agroot » Tue Jan 08, 2019 3:43 am

Need help with name of food here! (and more to come once I arrive again)

First is fish pieces served cold in buffet, skinned, white/gray, cured and very sour. Not sure if salted. It tastes springy - more than smoked salmon, possibly raw.

Nobody was eating it but tasted great in porridge with bacon and pepper. That's perfect breakfast! :D

Ceviche? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceviche

Grav (salt-cured) freshwater whitefish is a possibility on a Finnish breakfast buffet but one definitely can tell it's salted and it's not sour (albeit may be served with lemon or lime). https://www.valio.fi/reseptit/graavisiika/ (for the picture)

Thanks!! It looked just like the the Ceviche! :D But sour, not salty (although I did feel very thirsty afterwards). The sourness was embedded within the fish, not sauce from skin. Could curing the fish in lemon for a night achieve that?

Is it safe to make at home? from the valio.fi the fish is raw and only cured in salt - can that kill parasites?

Salting isn't enough, you should freeze the fish for 24 hours.

What are the Finnish sandwiches called? I think I have not tried this bread in such a combination.

What sandwiches exactly? A picture or a description would help. Finland doesn't really have a sandwich culture, toast skagen is served here and there in restaurants but it's Swedish. Voileipäkakku (literally: "sandwich cake") is another, more commonly served in family-type gatherings, not so much in restaurants.
