Exploring Danish Food
North of Hamburg and South of Oslo, Denmark is a peninsular country that has cultural influences from both Germanic and Nordic cultures. Like other Nordic countries, Danish cuisine is exemplified by its rich seafood traditions, including pickled herring, smoked trout, and caviar. These canned fish are frequently spread across crispbread, crackers, or rye bread and served with cheeses. Ground meats of pork and beef are also popular, and one may find meatballs, gravy, and roasted potatoes as a typical dinner time offering.
What Danish dishes can I make?
A simple way to incorporate Danish cuisine into your kitchen is to serve traditional canned fish, from salmon roe to smoked trout, as part of your charcuterie board appetizers. Spread lumpfish caviar and pickled herring on rye crackers with a wedge of cheese to make a fisherman’s lunch, or craft an open faced sandwich with rye bread, cured salmon, dill, and your favorite condiments. For a truly Danish dinner, try stegt flæsk, the national dish of Denmark!
