Is Surstromming really that bad?

Online Answer
The surströmming has a very noxious, foul and putrid smell. ... The taste is much better than the smell. The fermentation process prevents the fish from rotting (proteins decomposing) but the fish tastes extremely salty. I strongly suggest eating surströmming with cooked potatoes, hacked onion and smetana or creme fraiche..
