Danish Grilled Salmon with Mörk Sauce is my recipe  of the day. A Scandinavian inspired recipe was put together by me using Mörk sirap (syrup) with some other flavors that might be seen in a Danish Rijsttaffel and the grilled fish is it.

Generally, a rijsttafel, or rice table, would include a lot of different Indonesian foods to be served with rice, in  the tradition of Danish  colonists in Asia.

As a matter of fact, Mörk sirap is made from sugar beets. As is done around the world and dark syrups and molasses made from many  ingredients. You can get this at a specialty grocer, or substitute with  a light molasses. It will provide necessary sweetness to the sauce as well as a depth of flavor.
