Explanations of typical Scandinavian ingredients:

*Swedish “ättika” is sugar beet vinegar: in this recipe, it can also be replaced with vinegar.

*Kalix bleak roe comes from fish caught in the lightly-salted water off the coast of Kalix in northern Sweden. You can replace this with a roe of your choice.

*Dill flowers are often eaten in Sweden in the summer: the name is given to dill that is harvested at the end of its flowering season. If this is not in season, you can also use regular dill.
