Vasaloppet (Swedish for ‘The Vasa Race’) is an annual long-distance cross-country ski race held on the first Sunday of March. The 90 km (56 miles) course starts in the village of Sälen and ends in the town of Mora in northwestern Dalarna, Sweden. It is the oldest and longest cross-country ski race in the world, as well as the race with the highest number of skiers.

The race was inspired by a notable journey made by King Gustav Vasa when he fleeing from Christian II’s soldiers in 1520. The modern competition started in 1922 and it has been a part of the Worldrace events since 1978.

Fish fillets with Crab Sauce / Fiskefilet Med Krabbe

A classic Swedish lunch recipe found in “Cattelins Kokebok” (Cattelin’s Cook Book) published in 1978Fish fillets with Crab Sauce / Fiskefilet Med Krabbe

Cattelin was one of the best and cheapest restaurants in Stockholm. It had survived wars, disasters and changing tastes, and still managed to pack ‘em in until they were forced to shut down in 2011, so they must have done a lot of things right.

This is a nice dish for a lunch party – it is not too time-consuming to make either. The fish you use should be firm. An admonishing word along the way: Make sure the mushrooms are browned properly, not boiled.
