    Food - Herrings and kippers

    I had some smoked kippers today which were quite nice, though kinda repeated on me during the afternoon, lol. Do you folks eat herrings? Kippers even?

    We occasionally buy it fresh and whole and the fishmonger cleans it for us. I like to sprinkle salt over it and let it cure for a couple of days to firm up the flesh and draw out some of the moisture.

    It is then washed, and placed on a plate, julienned ginger, and I drizzle of vegetable oil over before setting on a trivet in a wok of boiling water and cover to steam for 10 minutes.

    Alternatively, the uncured fish can be covered with salt, a clove of two worth of finely minced garlic over the top, add shredded ginger, a level tablespoon of washed dried salt fermented black beans with a dash of soy sauce and oil over the top to steam.

    I prefer it to mackerel as the flavour is more delicate, the meat not so coarse its supposed to be one of the oily fishes which is good for you. So how do you like yours, and how do you cope with all the hair-like bones?

    My mum has kippers all the time, but they're vacum-packed with a knob of butter. 3 minutes in the micro.

    I love herring, and most all fish, including shell fish. I guess it's the Norwegian coming out of me...

    ^ yeah, how?

    Herrings used to be on sale all the time here, but we don't see it for ages then there are some. Its been like that since they introduced the fishing bans I reckon.

    Re: Food - Herrings and kippers

    i used to be able to find packs of salted herring...I'd soak the filets in a large bowl of water overnight...changing the water once


    next day I'd rinse the filets, cut them in half, and arrange them alternately with slices of red onion in a large Mason jar

    poured a hot pickling solution of vinegar, water, touch of wine, sugar, and pickling spices on top to fill the jar
    seal it up and let it sit in the fridge for 3 to 4 days

    haven't made it in years...can't find the packs of herring any more

    and I have to stay away from sugary foods now

    Li'l Bit never really cared for fish, and now that he's been vegetarian for so long, he definitely doesn't like it.

    “Kippers for breakfast, Aunt Helga? Is it St. Swithin's Day already?”



    Never had either, but I think of the Simpsons and Bart when I hear "kippers".

    Re: Food - Herrings and kippers

    never eat kippers, maybe I ate some already but didn't know the name. For herring, like it sautee, smoked with olive oil- so I can garnish it with capers later on
    the herring in a can already great

    Pickled herrings I love (it's my German ancestry): rollmops, Bismarck herrings - delicious alone, or in a German herring salad: pickled herring, potato, onion and beetroot. Heaven.

    Love it, herring is in my blood. I've been eating it since I was a kid. It does have a tendency to repeat on a person tho.....

    TIP: You don't have to soak steak.
