This is a smorgasbord recipe known in Sweden as "Mr. Janssen's Temptation". The cream moderates the anchovies and it's very satisfying.
This was surprisingly wonderful! I wanted to give anchovies another chance after hating them since childhood. I made half a batch, because I knew our kids wouldn't try it. Aside from that, my only tweaks were to saute my onion a little and add some flat-leaf parsley and black pepper. Had it with a nice spinach salad for a really good, inexpensive meal.

I've been living/working in Sweden over the past year and some and I am starting a collection of Swedish recipes for when my Swedish boyfriend and I move to Canada. I figure a little Swedish cooking will help him feel more at home (he's never been to Canada). This recipe is alot simpler than many you find for Janssons Temptation, and suprisingly it tastes just as good as any you can have in Sweden. Thanks for sharing, this is a definate keeper!! - 04 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was our first time trying anchovies. As a general rule we like fish, though a couple in the family are not fond of fish. This dish, however, cooked up very mild with a slight taste of fish...but different. Everyone ate it, most had seconds, and I will be cooking it again. We enjoyed it with some bacon wrapped asparagus and the two proved to be quite filling. - 08 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
