A MODERN SCANDINAVIAN CHRISTMAS EVE SMÖRGÅSBORD

From Sarah : This could be a New Years Eve Smorgasbord.

A Modern Christmas Eve Smörgåsbord

Roasted Salmon with Brown Sugar and Butter

Swedish Meatballs (prepared without gravy)

Creamy Mustard Dill Sauce

Celery Root and Potato Puree

Spicy Pickled Beets

Fresh Pickled Cucumbers

Stirred Lingonberries

Kale Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash and Pecans

Mushroom Gratin

Swedish Limpa

Lingonberry Skyr Mousse

Everything on this menu goes together beautifully.  Both the roasted salmon and the meatballs benefit from a spoonful or two of the Creamy Mustard Dill Sauce, and the Celery Root and Potato Puree provides a velvety rich base.  The Kale Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash and Pecans brings a fresh burst of green and orange to the plate, and the Mushroom Gratin a delightful mix of creamy mushrooms and crispy, buttery breadcrumbs.  The Spicy Pickled BeetsFresh Pickled Cucumbers and Stirred Lingonberries round everything out with a bit of spicy, briny and sweet. And for dessert, a luscious Lingonberry Skyr Mousse which somehow manages to be both light and decadent at the same time.
