  • Avocado — Choose ripe avocados that are slightly soft to the touch.
  • Pickled beets — If you prefer a milder flavor, rinse the pickled beets before using them.
  • Fresh dill — Use fresh dill for its vibrant taste and aroma.
  • Feta cheese — Crumble the feta cheese just before serving to maintain its texture.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra Nordic touch, serve the Huevos Rancheros with a side of rye bread or crispbread.
  • Experiment with different types of pickled vegetables, such as pickled radishes or cucumbers, for added flavor and texture.
  • If you prefer a vegetarian version, replace the smoked salmon with grilled mushrooms or roasted root vegetables.
  • Add a squeeze of lemon juice over the dish for a refreshing citrus twist.
  • Feel free to customize the toppings based on your preferences. Nordic cuisine encourages creativity and the use of local, seasonal ingredients.
