Recipe from Quick Dishes: Herring à la Maison

This is a typical Scandinavian herring dish.

Prep time: 15 minutes.
Makes 4 servings.

1 large red onion
1 bunch dill
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
3 tbs wine vinegar
2-3 tbs sugar
1 tbs oil
400 g marinated herring

Peel and chop the onion very finely. Mix with chopped dill, pepper, vinegar, sugar and oil. Cut the herring into bite-size pieces (you can also buy it already in pieces). Arrange on a serving dish. Pour the sauce over the herring. Let stand while you cook some potatoes to serve with the dish.

Serving suggestion from me:
Serve as part of a Scandinavian-style cold buffet (smörgåsbord) with other cold dishes, such as Russian style herring salad, smoked salmon, gravlax, ham, and other cold delicacies.

Most, if not all herring dishes are delicious as a topping for rye bread.
