“This is not sardine or herring, but something close. Try this small pickled and smoked fish, you will love it, ”urges one European canned food producer. For most Europeans (and even more so Americans), sprats, in the form in which they are known to us, are an exotic product. Or, at the very least, unfamiliar.
The "official" name of the fish from which these canned food is made is European sprat, literally "European sprat". So, the English "sprat" turned into "sprats" actually means "sprat". Another name for sprat that has taken root in Europe is "Russian sardines". Although, of course, sprats are a Baltic phenomenon. In the Baltic countries, this small fish was traditionally salted and dried, and in the 18th century they mastered storage in barrels - smoked sprats were poured with oil. The fish did not spoil in this form for a long time, and with the advent of canning technology, these periods increased significantly. True, at first (at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries) jars with sprats cost a lot of money and were a real delicacy (the first factory for their production, by the way, was opened in Norway, in the city of Stavanger. Now there is a museum.).
There is also a tradition of German sprat, without oil and burying it in tin containers: the fish is only smoked and "packed" in wooden boxes. One of the heroes of Remarque's book "The Black Obelisk" "holds a jar of delicious Kiel sprats and, smacking his lips, devours them."

First, let's learn how to lay out cold cuts. It is she who "opens" the festive evening. Each hostess tries to please all guests and each one individually, so she puts the most beautiful dishes on the table and lays out the meat in the most skillful way.
Not a single meat dish is complete without a spicy seasoning in the form of mustard and various sauces. The best place for seasoning is the center of a large dish. Decorate the seasoning with sprigs of dill or parsley, then the dish will immediately attract attention.
If you have several types of meat, then divide the plate into segments. Spread thinly sliced pieces on each segment in a circle, overlapping them a little.
New Year's table setting
There are only a few days left until the New Year, it's time to take care of what the serving should be ...
The most skilled craftswomen make tubes from pieces, then fold them in pyramids or waves. So that the guests do not hesitate how to take a piece from the plate, put toothpicks next to it, and preferably special skewers.

Using these recipes as an example, we made sure that a sprat sandwich may not be as simple as it seems to many. For a dish to make a real splash, you need to think over its presentation.
