Gubbröra is an egg-anchovy salad whose colourful Swedish name means ‘old man’s mix’. Works well both as a starter and as a midnight snack.
Swedish culinary tradition includes numerous dishes that are based on seafood or meat that has been salted to last a long time, in this case spice-cured anchovies. Egg-anchovy salad is best served as a starter on a thin slice of round dark bread. A small sprig of dill on top looks nice.
