janssons frestelse recipe in english

When I received the theme of the week from Electrolux for the "Inspiration Food Marathon"Swedish Delights – I thought I had been here. :)) Swedish cuisine is not very well known, although looking and reading about it I discovered some fantastic recipes.

For today I chose to prepare Janssons Frestelse , a traditional recipe that is in the preferences of the Swedes, being consumed especially at Christmas dinner. A simple and delicious recipe, which I found in several variants, some with anchovies, some with sprot. In the end, I chose the one that suited me :)))
