Norwegian Lakserull with Beetroot

Norwegian Lakserull with Beetroot

Lakserull is a Norwegian dish consisting of rolled-up smoked salmon and dill paste in a thin potato flatbread. We've created two delicious variations of this traditional recipe. The first version is a quick and easy option, using any thin flatbread you have on hand. The second version is a bit more time-intensive but transforms the dish into a hearty dinner by substituting the flatbread with potato fritters. Our signature spice blend enhances the dill flavor with fennel and adds a burst of color and taste with beetroot powder.

Option 1 - Potato Fritters

  • Pour a ladleful of the potato mixture into the pan and flatten it into a fritter about the size of your hand. Depending on the size of your pan, you should be able to fit two or three fritters at a time.
  • Fry the fritters until they are golden brown on both sides, flipping them halfway through the cooking time.
  • Remove the fritters from the pan and drain on paper towels if necessary.
  • Serve them topped with the salmon, sprinkled with green onions, and the spiced yogurt.

Alternative Quick Option 2 - Flatbread Rolls

  • Add the salmon and sprinkle the onions on top.
  • Roll the flatbread tightly and cut it into 3 to 4 cm pieces.
