For English readers:

Canned mackerel is a very versatile food. In Norway we eat this with crisp bread, non crisp bread, rice and just everything. This time we are going to fry the canned fish. All we need for this one are:

2                                 onions

2                                 canned mackerel

2 tablespoons          Oil

1 teaspoon                Salt

Dried chilli flakes (mild ones)


Peel the onions and cut them into small cubes and crush them with dried chilli flakes in mortar and pestle (or use blender). Then add the canned mackerel into the mixture. Heat the oil and fry the paste for about 25 minutes. Stir often.
