    Default What the hell is this Surstromming thing???

    It's some kind of canned Swedish herring that is extremely foul smelling.

    In this video, a British woman who specializes in eating exotic, awful foods, can barely even open the can without retching multiple times....

    Has anyone here ever had this stuff?

    I've had lutefisk and never felt like wretching after. I mean, it wasn't great, but my neighbor served it and I was being polite.

    I thought this was going to be about that fermented shark they eat in Iceland. I don't think I've ever had Lutefisk before but I think there's a holiday in Sweden where that's one of the things they eat.

    The can has such a foul smell that people open it underwater. I visited a friend's summer house after her Swedish husband had brought some to his inlaws to try it. They'd opened the can 2 days prior, underwater in the sink. The house still had a strong fish smell and there were a bunch of stray cats in the garden lured by the smell. I didn't try it. The friend did try it and she said besides the smell the taste really wasn't bad at all.

    I swear I watched some Swedish show where people were doing all this. Or maybe it was a travel/food show? Anyway, I remember them opening the can under water and everything.
