I came across pickled herring for the first time last week in our new gourmet supermarket. I guess it is an acquired taste, my husband had the tiniest nibble and almost spat it out right away. But then he really isn’t a big fish fan. I who love the taste of almost anything from the water, on the other hand, found the vinegary, rich, oily white flesh a true delicacy.
Served on sliced boiled potato accompanied with a dot of sour cream, sprinkled with finely chopped onion and garnished with a sprig of dill, it makes the perfect healthy lunch that isn’t boring. Or better yet, breakfast.
