This is the picture of a package of Salted Herring Fillet In Oil. What is a herring? Herring is the name of the fish. When most people think of herring, they think of the way the herring fish is prepared – salted and pickled.
Herring is certainly an exotic food that only some people dare to try. I like herring because I grew up in Russia where herring is a very common food.
Not all herring is created equal. Herring’s taste depends on how it was pickled – there are apparently many different methods of preserving herring. My favorite kind of herring is the Zigmas brand, as shown on the first picture.
Once you open a package of herring, here’s what you see:
These herring fillets have no bones in them, and taste salty and marinated.
Herring goes great with potatoes. Potatoes and herring are a pair of foods that are made for each other. If I eat herring, I always have it with potatoes.
Just get the herring out of the package and discard the oil in the package. Serve the herring fillet with some piping hot potatoes!
