International Food of the Month: Baltic Fish from Finland

Finland has some of the best food I have ever tasted. While slowly making my way through the Arts and Crafts Market next to the harbor in Helsinki, Finland, I smelled something delicious coming from one of the food stands. When I saw fish frying on the hot plates, I wasn’t surprised. Baltic fish is very popular in Finland, and every October there is a Baltic Herring Fair. This fair is the oldest traditional event in Helsinki, originated in 1743. Piled on top of onion rings, warm potatoes sprinkled with herbs, and grilled vegetables, Finland knows how to make a hearty and delicious fish dish.
