Smörgåskaviar as a condiment on a cottage cheese sandwich

Smörgåskaviar is a fish roe spread eaten in Scandinavia and Finland.[1] It differs from the more common sturgeon or salmon caviar in that it is made from cod roe and a variable mix of other ingredients. These can include mashed potatoes, tomato sauce, onion, salt and often dill or chives. It is usually sold in smoked[2] and non-smoked variants, as well as in variants with a prominent taste of dill, for instance Öhnbergs Dill-kaviar. The most common brand in Sweden is Kalles kaviar.[3][4][5]
