Ingredients: Sprats (Sprattus sprattus), canola oil, salt, beechwood smoke.
Baltic sea sprats caught in the icy waters of Eckernförde, they bear the name Kieler, a city further south, because Kiel was the nearest railway hub.
Beginning in the mid-1800s, these smoked fish were carted for export by horse and buggy from Eckernförde to the Kiel station. The large shipping stamp on the crates led to a widespread, but incorrect, perception that the fish were produced in Kiel.
