Convenience food is food, too.
This is Swedish "fiskbullar" - small fish cakes, basically. They come in cans, in various sauces, and I haven't had any since I was forced to eat them in school. Until very recently. I got a sudden craving for them, feeling that they'd probably be nicely comforting and so I bought a few different kinds. This one is in a "lobster" sauce which most definitely bears no resemblance to lobster, but it's vaguely shellfish-y in flavor. And... pretty good. Really. I had it with mashed potatoes, and some extra chili powder on top, and it was a perfectly satisfactory lunch. Not something I'll have often, but good to have stashed in the cupboards for emergencies.
