Surströmming (Swedish for ”sour herring”) is a lightly-salted fermented Baltic Sea herring that has been part of northern Swedish cuisine since at least the 16th century. It is often eaten with tunnbröd, a thin, either soft or crispy bread (not to be confused with crispbread). In addition to the fish, the two most common toppings are potatoes (either sliced or mashed, often almond potatoes) and finely diced red onion.
