For no particular reason, the word “Sennep” came to mind during the week!
Sennep is Norwegian for mustard, and from that, I thought of dill. Dill is a prolific herb found all over Asia and here in Thailand it is known as “Packchee Lao” and is used in many local cuisines. In fact, a very similar herb is also plentiful in Scandinavia.
Quite extraordinary really, that there should be such similarity, in such vastly different climates.
So, what is the connection between mustard and dill?
They are the essential ingredient in making dill sauce, which is served with Gravadlax, that wonderful way of curing Salmon that the Vikings have given us.
Incidentally, you may be surprised to know that it is not France or Germany which are the biggest producers of mustard! But Canada, by a long shot.
So, I thought why not give our customers the chance to taste Gravadlax with Dill Sauce. We tried it and it works… just delicious!
