"Save The Family" Herring Platter
(Familjens Raddning)
This dish is composed of bits of food ( often leftovers) often on hand in Scandinavian kitchens. It makes a pleasant cold luncheon or late-supper dish, and can also be part of the "Smorgasbord".

What You Need:
  • 2 fillets of canned matjes or pickled herring, drained
  • ½ cup sour cream, or ¼ cup sour cream combined with ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs, the whites and yolks finely chopped separately
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, halved, seeded and finely chopped or ½ cup pickled cucumbers
  • ½ cup finely chopped pickled beets, canned or freshly made
  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley

  • How To Cook:
    1. Arrange the herring fillets side by side on a long chilled platter.

    2. With a sharp, heavy knife, make diagonal cuts ½ inch apart through both fillets.

    3. Spread the sour cream (or sour cream and mayonnaise) in a circle around the herring fillets.

    4. On the border of the platter, arrange alternate mounds of chopped egg white, egg yolk, cucumbers, beets and parsley.
