There exists a great myth that cheese and fish aren’t friendly with one another. At first, it seems right - what about rich cheese would complement often dainty, delicate fish? But then, what is the lovely combination of goat cheese and smoked salmon? Doesn’t that count?
The lovely combination of goat cheese and smoked salmon, it appears, is cheating. We did a little digging. When it comes to cheese and fish, traditionalists aren’t above a swift outlawing of the two together on the same plate. People are serious about this: to some Italians, it’s downright offensive. As a rebuttal, the Scandinavians swoop in to save the day, expel the myth, and make some delicious salmon with blue cheese. So there we have it. Now you can stop losing sleep, and start cooking fish and cheese, free of scorn. (From us, anyway.)
