“Zapiekanka” is a most popular Polish street food, and my favorite one. You will find it in almost every city, usually in places that are open 24h., which makes it easy to grab even after a long night of partying 🙂

What I love about Zapiekanka is that it’s simple, super tasty and looks gorgeous. It’s the perfect finger food for a party—and because of its fame, you’ll find it in many tasty combinations. But in my opinion, the best way to enjoy Zapiekanka is to discover its traditional variant first.

Pork Chops (Kotlet Schabowy)

The pork chop, lovingly called ”schaboszczak” in Poland, is one of our most common dishes. It dates back to the time of the Polish People’s Republic. In my family, we would serve it for Sunday dinner, preceded by “rosół,” Polish chicken soup. The first written ”schabowy” was published in Lucyna Ćwierczakiewiczówna’s “365 dinners for 5 zloty,” a cookbook that symbolised PPR times.

Pork chops are usually served with fried cabbage salad and potatoes—however, I prefer to prepare it with light, seasonal vegetables and a small Chez Domia twist. I hope you like it!

Smoked Mackerel (Wędzona Makrela)

My hometown is near the Baltic Sea, so I am used to eating quite a lot of fish, especially smoked ones. This is something I miss a lot in Paris.

In Poland, I was pampered with different species of smoked fish, and for me the most precious one is mackerel. Luckily, in my little Poland at the Bastille Market (mentioned in a previous post http://chezdomia.com/?p=161 ), I can keep spoiling myself with this delicious and healthy snack.

Traditional vegetable salad is typically served on Polish tables during Easter. It is beloved by many for its simplicity and many flavours. It’s a perfect daily appetizer, paired best with fresh, crunchy bread!

I love preparing this salad during weekends so I can eat it in the mornings over the course of the week, and sometimes I even bring a bit to work.

Herring Marinated in Olive Oil with Onion and Dill (Śledź w Oleju z Cebulą i Koperkiem)

Small bites By June 6, 2016 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Persons: 1-2    Cost: $$     Level: medium     Time: 20min (+3 days to marinade)      Ingredients: fish can be dificult to find


Marinated herring is a very old dish. Almost every Pole has had marinated herring with cold shot of vodka at least once in his life 🙂 This traditional meal was often served as an appetizer, to warm up your appetite, in Polish restaurants before WWII.

Why is this fish so popular? First of all, it’s super healthy; secondly, it isn’t so expensive. And third, it is easy to marinate. That why it became so popular in Poland and Scandinavian countries. As a result, we have developed a variety of delicious marinades to accompany it, each with a unique flavour: Spicy, bittersweet, sweet-spicy and natural.
