By Jamie Oliver
- Lay 1 or 2 herrings in the middle of each plate and spoon a few dollops of soured cream over each one.
- Finely chop and top with a big handful of chives. Peel, finely chop and sprinkle over the onion, and add a small spoonful of fish roe (if using) – you can buy this in a lot of supermarkets these days.
- Finely grate some lemon zest over each portion, and garnish with some dill flowers, if you have them. Serve next to some buttered slices of rye bread, with a wedge of lemon for squeezing over.
Good supermarkets here should stock pickled herrings, as will good fishmongers if you give them a few days’ notice. You can also get them really easily from mail order/online stockists like totallyswedish.com. They will sit happily in your fridge, begging to be used as a fabulous starter, or as a main course with new potatoes and a simple green salad. I urge you to give them a try.
