“Due to the short summer growing seasons, many Scandinavian foods are pickled, dried, salted or smoked to last the winter. They’re also usually low in fat and high in protein, which make them great healthy choices. Norwegians even skip the fatty eggs and bacon for a breakfast of pickled herring. Or, you could just try a sweet, buttery smoked salmon. This takes 36 hours of refrigeration but other than that, there is very little work to do. This is a Weight Watchers recipe! Enjoy!”
