This months recipe – Janssons Temptation.

You can not have a Scandinavian Christmas dinner without the traditional Jansons Temptation.

You may or may not know that the “anchovies” that we use in Scandinavia to prepare this dish is actually not the anchovies you can buy at the New Zealand supermarkets. The fillets used in Scandinavia are called anchovies, although they are prepared from a small sardine-like fish sprat (Sprattus sprattus) and not from the genuine anchovy (Engraulis encrasicholus).

Swedish canned sprat fillets have a distinctive flavor and their taste differs greatly from that of real anchovy fillets. This is an important fact to know when preparing original Swedish or Finnish dishes that call for anchovies to be used, thus meaning Swedish canned sprats.

Falkeskogs Anchovy Flavored Herring Fillets has the same distinctive taste and can be used to prepare these dishes. When using Falkeskogs Anchovy Flavored Herring Fillets, please substitute a 125g Swedish Anchovy can with 8-10 finely chopped Anchovy Flavored Herring Fillets.
