My wife is a food lover, but there are some delicacies that she does not understand. One is fried herring with onion sauce. This is Swedish home cooking west coast style at its best. If you do not find salted herring, put the herring in salted water for 12 hours before preparation.
- 700 g salted herring (fillets).
- bread crumbs
- 4 onions
- 2 dl double cream
- 2 dl milk
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp flour
Put the salted fillets in cold water for 6 hours.
Slice the onion and fry it without getting colour. Add flour and stir. Then add milk and cream. Simmer until the sauce has the right texture. Add soy sauce and pepper.
Dry the herring and turn them into the bread crumbs. Fry in butter 2 min on each side. Serve with sauce, boiled potatoes, beer and a snaps.
The dinner was accompanied by a handful snaps songs.
