A mid afternoon snack – Paprykarz szczecinski / Szczecin Fish Spread on dark rye bread.

Paprykarz szczeciński is a Polish paste and is a tasty mixture of minced sea fish (usually around 40%) with rice, onion, tomato concentrate, vegetable oil, salt, sugar, vinegar, and a variety of spices. It was probably most popular during the Communist-period but is still consumed in large quantities by Poles throughout the world to this day. The word szczeciński derives from the name of the city of Szczecin, in Western Pomerania, where it was initially produced in the late 1950s.
