Graavisiika ja friteerattu muikku - salt-cured whitefish and fried vendace

In my previous post I was excited about the prospect of a fish market coming to our neighborhood. As of yesterday Kalaliike Mäkinen is open for business at Kauppakatu 6 in Jyväskylä.

To celebrate the occasion I bought some graavisiika. Graavisiika is prepared much in the same way as gravlax, but with whitefish instead of salmon. Eat it by itself or with a nice rye bread, some butter, and a sprig of dill.


I also bought some fried muikku (vendace), a delicious snack served warm or cold.

Fried vendace aka muikku
