Beetroot, horseradish and vodka-marinated salmon


The arrival of summer also marked the opening of Britta’s Nordic Deli. Catering to homesick Scandinavians missing their gravad lax or unusual confections, as well as to Barcelonians keen to sample the flavors of northerly European climes, this deli and sandwich shop adds variety to the shopping basket, an abundance of gluten-free choices and a welcome change to the weekday take-away lunch scene.

As well as the charcuterie of wild boar and venison, Nordic cheeses, smoked halibut and wild salmon on the deli counter, there are great sandwiches: marinated salmon with mustard and dill dressing and redcurrant, mild blue cheese with blueberry and cranberry jam, or smoked turkey breast with mild tarragon curry cream, with gluten-free seeded bread available.

Throw in an organic elderflower juice or mint lemonade from the shelves, some salty, chili cranberry licorice to chew on later, and you have a midday meal with a difference.
