Pickled Or Soused Herrings
|Herrings||2 (2 Pieces Per Person)|
|Sliced onion||1 Large (For 8 Fish Pieces)|
|Pickling spice||1 Teaspoon|
|Vinegar||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), combined with equal amount of water|
|Water||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
Clean the fish and remove the heads and tails.
It is not necessary to fillet them.
Lay them in an oven-proof dish, after rubbing a little salt into the skin.
Add the bay leaves, pickling spice, the thinly sliced onion and pepper and barely cover the fish with a mixture of half vinegar and half water.
Cover with a piece of oven foil or a lid and bake in a moderate oven (300Â°F. electric; gas regulo 3) for 30-40 minutes.
Leave to get cold in the liquid.
They are also served cold, with a little of the tangy liquid poured over.
Also for mackerel.
