Fried Herring With Onion Sauce
(Silke Cepts Ar Sipoli Merce)
What You Need:
  • 2 fillets schmaltz herring (½ pound), or substitute 2 fillets pickled herring
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons finely chopped onions
  • ½ teaspoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon fresh strained lemon juice

  • How To Cook:
    1. Dip the herring fillets into the flour, coating them well on both sides. Then shake them vigorously to rid them of any excess flour. In a heavy 10- to 12- inch skillet, heat the oil over high heat until a light haze forms above it.

    2. Drop in the herring and fry about 2 minutes on each side, turning them over carefully with a large spatula.

    3. When they are golden brown on both sides, transfer them to a heated serving plate and cover them loosely with foil to keep them warm while you make the sauce.

    1. In the same skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over moderate heat. Add the chopped onions and, stirring frequently, cook for about 5 minutes, or until they are soft but not brown.

    2. Stir in the flour, then the mustard, sour cream, salt and a few grindings of pepper. Stirring constantly, simmer over low heat for about a minute, or until the sauce thickens lightly.

    3. Off the heat, stir in the lemon juice and taste for seasoning. Pour the sauce into a small bowl or sauceboat and serve at once with the herring as a first course or as part of an appetizer table.

    To Serve: 2 to 4
