Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Fish fillets — Ensure the fish fillets are fresh and of high quality. If using trout or salmon, remove any bones before rolling.
  • Pickles — Opt for pickles with a tangy flavor to enhance the overall taste of the dish.
  • White wine vinegar — Use a good quality white wine vinegar to add a subtle acidity to the marinade.
  • Fresh herbs — For the best flavor, use fresh dill and parsley. If unavailable, you can substitute with dried herbs, but reduce the quantity by half.

Tips & Tricks

  • Experiment with different fish fillets to find your favorite combination.
  • Adjust the level of spiciness by increasing or decreasing the amount of cayenne pepper.
  • Serve the Andorran-style marinated fish rolls with crusty bread or as part of a tapas spread.
  • If you prefer a milder flavor, soak the sliced onions in cold water for 10 minutes before adding them to the marinade.
  • For an extra burst of freshness, squeeze some lemon juice over the fish rolls before serving.
