Nordics like Fish by humon Nordics like Fish by humon
Many many Swedes and Norwegians have suggested that I made a comic about “surströmming”, which is mainly a Swedish dish, but can also be found in some parts of Norway. It smells so bad that it is mainly eaten outside in the summer, and many Swedes enjoys exposing Danes to it just to see their look of horror at the smell.

Hákarl is a special Icelandic dish made of rotten shark, that is more traditional than normal, though you can still find it in supermarkets. It is said to be the most disgusting food in the world.

Pickled herring can be found in all Nordic countries, and is particularly popular in Denmark. In fact, a Danish adult who doesn’t like pickled herring is seen as rather weird.

And non of this is of course supposed to be eaten like this. You are supposed to put it on bread. :XD:

And to the newcomers: “Skål” is the Nordic word for “cheers”.

Nobody likes lutefisk, they just deal with it cause Tradition...except in America, Americans of Scandinavian descent seem to think it's required as a rite of passage or something (myself included, lol).

Pickled Herring is also very popular in Poland :D. We even have a saying 'śledzik lubi pływać' (in Englishh it would be 'herring likes to swim') - means we like to drink a lot of alkohol with this dish (mostly vodka, we invented it after all :D).
And I LOL'ed so hard at Iceland and his shark!
