Baltic Bi Bim Bap

I was introduced to Bi Bim Bap by the Perfect Health Diet blog: Bi Bim Bap - the food looked fresh, fun and flavoursome, and something I wanted to do for myself.

I had some fun making up a kind of British Bi Bim Bap and this morning set about making up a Baltic inspired version.

Using leftover Jansson's Temptation as the foundation stone, topped with a fried egg and all manner of Baltic ingredients can be built up around the edge.

I went for pickled herrings, smoked salmon, sausages, sauerkraut, radish, grated carrot, blueberries, pickled gherkin, pickled beetroot, soured cream and a little turmeric sprinkled over.

Huge fun!

What a seriously sound breakfast for an energetic day ahead.


  1. Oh!It looks beautiful!!!
    Is there some rice inside??
    As 'The Original(Korean)Bi Bim Bab'goes with rice......

    1. Thank you bhee21.

      I took the inspiration of the Bi Bim Bap - the leftover dish, and "fused" it with a culture that I am familiar with using a variety of Baltic ingredients instead.

      Underneath the fried egg is some leftover Jansson's Temptation, a Swedish dish of potato and anchovy. There is no rice, but the idea of a good base of starch is there with the potato.

      Thanks for stopping by.
