This is one of the recipes I found on the web while investigating Swedish herring recipes. The original is by David Weinehall. It became clear to me that I needed to make this dish when I found that I had one of the most elusive ingredients—lumpfish roe—in the fridge.


Original      quantity      ingredient     
1 jar 250g Matjes filets
1 dl 20 g Leek
3 180g Hard-boiled eggs
1 Egg yolk
1 tablespoon 15 ml French mustard
100 ml oil
100 ml Sour cream
1 jar 50 g Red lumpfish roe
50 ml Chopped dill
50 ml Chives


  1. Chop the matjes into cubes about 5 to 10 mm on a side.
  2. Mix the egg yolk, mustard and oil, stirring throughly.
  3. Mix in the remaining ingredients, reserving a little hard-boiled egg and leek for the garnish.
  4. Preferably cool for an hour or more before serving.
  5. Serve with boiled potatoes.
