To finish our “Herring week” I bring you a very simple recipe that portraits the ingredient in the most respectful of ways. Also very appropriate for Lent.
It’s a recipe for herring lovers. It’s also one of my dad’s favorites, but he’s definitely a herring fan.
Since herring has a very intense and salty flavor there’s no need for seasoning or salt. (please note I use fillets, regular salted herring is too salty for this recipe)
- ½ packet herring filets (a packet is usually 2 lbs)
- ½ white or red onion. It really depends on your taste. Keep in mind red onion is much stronger.
- Olive oil.
Heat the oil a bit and add the onions, let them cook for about 2 minutes. Add the herring and allow to cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Serve, add the onion on top and some more olive oil.
We almost always serve with a side of boiled plantains and yuca. (cassava)
