Tusen takk for this sentence! Jeg elsker også å spise sursild til frokost!

I am not a fish eater so this sounds awful. Should I be rethinking my trip to Norway in August? Just kidding - ticket is bought. I vil spise ost, brød, egg, og grønnsaker. Jeg håper!

it's too early in the morning for fish breath.

Is sursild a common breakfast food i Norge?

Not particularly, but more so around Christmas. I was served some for breakfast last Sunday.

It's the sort of thing you either love or hate, and seems to be more popular with the older generation.

Sennepssild med dill er den beste sursilda jeg noensinne har smakt ^-^

Jeg lurte når dette ord ville dukke opp. Det kom mye tidligere i det svenske kurset (surströmming).

Yeah, I love it too. Unfortunately, norwegian version proved to be unnecessary sweet.. :( Just like with surkål..

is sursild something similar to Swedish surstromming? If so, I'll go with a nope.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rosomak4

No, it's just pickled herring. But yesterday I've bought also something you can find writing 'sursild godteri' in Google images ;) great little norwegian gut twister ;)

oh, okay :) I'd (the svenophone - is that a word? - in me at least) just call that sill. But thinking about sill godis, ugh, no.

Can you also translate sursild as soused herring?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Moongrovenly

More like soured...

I'll never get used to the Norwegian sursild - it's sweet not sour, and it's often seasoned with cloves. This country has fantastic fish and then they ruin it... I love pickled herring for breakfast btw
