Marinated Fish Canapes (Party Food)

Introduction: Marinated Fish Canapes (Party Food)

About: Hey! I am Julia. Welcome to my world. Come join me on my food and photography adventure! I create recipes, videos and tutorials!

Believe it or not this is one of my favorite canapés! The combination of dark bread, potato, fish, onion and crème fraiche tastes just divine! The secret to these canapés is to find the balance between each individual topping to get the final mouth-watering piece so I try to slice everything really thin, season it well (try one or two first to see how much of salt and pepper work for you) and top with crème fraiche.

These canapés are a very popular party food in Estonia, Sweden and Finland although they may slightly vary from country to country.

Step 1: Ingredients:

3 Medium Potatoes

100g Marinated or Pickled Fish (herring or sprat)

1 Small Onion

Crème Fraiche

Dark Rye Bread

Butter, softened

Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley (for garnish)

Salt & pepper

4 Eggs (optional)

Makes: about 25-30 canapés

Time: Cooking 10 -15 minutes + Preparation 30 minutes

Step 2: Method:

Hard-boil the eggs. Once cooked, cool them down and remove the shells. Cut into thin slices or use an egg slicer.
Wash the potatoes. Place them in a saucepan of boiling water and boil until cooked (don’t overcook them). Pour away the hot water and pour over cold water to speed up the cooling process. Slice them into about ½ cm thin rounds.

Cut the onion in half and slice really thinly.

Slice the bread into small bite size square or rectangular pieces. Spread with a thin layer of butter, place a potato round onto the bread, season with salt & pepper, top with an egg slice, followed by some onion, a fish slice, and about a tea spoon of crème fraiche.

Garnish with fresh flat leaf parsley, transfer on to a serving plate and you are ready to serve!
