It is supposed to be eaten as is on bread, but it is a little sweet, so I add soy sauce and ajinomoto. The key is to use ajinomoto to add only umami, not dashi powder.

NOTES
Kalles Kaviar is said to be a Swedish national food. You can buy it from IKEA worldwide and from basically any rmarket if you’re in Finland.
The taste is unique. I felt a strong sweetness with a mixture of fish smell. To distinguish the sweetness better, I put ajinomoto to add umami, and for fish smell, I added soy sauce to cover the smell.
This is a real quick and easy lunch I like. You can also boil frozen seafood like shrimp, squid or mussels together with the pasta and you’ll have a more filling meal.
share your dish!
