Pickled herrings

“Herring might be an underrated fish elsewhere in the world, but if I’ve learnt anything on this trip it’s that the Swedes take them incredibly seriously. They go to work pickling and preserving their herring in November, because by this time the fish have finished spawning and the texture of their flesh is dense and delicious again. I'm so glad I became reacquainted with the joys of herring during my visit because I discovered really creative, mind-blowing flavours for pickling: everything from dill to red onion, cloves and even a curried mayo! 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 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. ”
