Herrings in cream

Herrings in cream


Herrings with potatoes is a very painful memory of the school canteen for many of us. Though we like herrings with onion, I rarely serve it for dinner. Today I decided to break this rule and prepared herrings for dinner. I served herrings and potatoes once again, but in a completely different way.

I served baked jacket potatoes. The herrings were excellent with cream sauce and onion, apple and dill pickles. See for yourself if you like this way of preparing herrings.

Ingredients (for 2 people)
6 potatoes
2 tablespoons of olive oil
200g of herrings in oil
200g of 18% cream
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of mustard
half an onion
1 apple
3 dill pickles
2 tablespoons of minced dill

Heat the oven up to 180C.
Boil the unpeeled potatoes in salty water until they are soft. Cut the potatoes into quarters, put them in a casserole dish, sprinkle them with olive oil and bake until they are golden. Dice the onion, apple, and dill pickles. Cut the herrings into smaller pieces. Arrange the baked potatoes with cream sauce on a plate along with the pieces of herrings. Decorate with sprigs of dill.
