Herring

 

Herring

 

Beautifully flavoured fresh whitefish. Try seasoning with oatmeal and shallow-frying in butter, serve hot or cold.

Alternatively simply score, brush with butter and grill. The traditional accompaniment is mustard, though horseradish is good too. Herring can be pickled, soused, marinated, salted and smoked.


  Herrings in oatmeal with bacon   Serves 4  
 


Directions:

Season the herring fillets on both sides with salt and pepper. Spread the oatmeal over a plate and coat the herring fillets init, pressing it well on to both sides.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the streaky bacon strips and fry until crisp and golden. Remover from the pan with a slotted spoon and keep warm.

Add the herring fillets to the pan, flesh-side down, and fry for 1 minute. Turn over and fry for another 1-2 minutes, until the skin is golden brown. Put the fillets on 4 warmed plates and sprinkle over the bacon. Serve with the lemon wedges, and some boiled floury patatoes that have been tossed with a little chopped parsley.

• 4x 225g (8oz) herrings, cleaned & filleted
