SALUTING BALTIC HERRING PT. 1: OVEN BAKED BALTIC HERRING WITH BEET-
ROOT, RED ONION, SOUR CREAM & HONEY


"The best I've had for a while" I wrote as a comment, when posting a picture of the dish last Sat on Food from Hel Instagram.

After I had it for the second time yesterday, I'd like to make a fine adjustment to my comment:
"The best Baltic herring I've ever had."

Oh, and more Baltic herring to follow tomorrow. Hard to beat this one though.



OVEN BAKED BALTIC HERRING WITH BEETROOT, RED ONION, SOUR CREAM AND HONEY

250g Baltic herring fillets
2-4 beetroots (depending on the size)
2-4 red onions (size matters, again)
2 tbsp olive oil
salt
black pepper
parsley, small bunch
1-2 tbsp honey (liquid)
1dl sour cream (smetana)

  1. Peel and cut up the beetroots and onions.
  2. Toss them around in oil and put on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in 225°C ca. 20 minutes.
  4. Take the sheet out of the oven and place the Baltic herring fillets on it. Add salt on both, fish and vegetables, and ground some black pepper.
  5. Bake for another 5 minutes.
  6. After baking, dribble honey on fish fillets and veggies and garnish with shredded parsley.
  7. Serve with cold smetana or similar sour cream.
