  Herrings 1 1⁄2 Kilogram, cleaned (4 pieces, 350 gram each)
  Lean back bacon rashers 2
  Skimmed milk 300 Milliliter
  Coarse oatmeal 150 Gram
  Olive oil spray 1
  Onion 1 Large, finely sliced
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), finely chopped
  Dry martini 3 Tablespoon
  Roasted red peppers 145 Gram, drained and dried on kitchen paper (jarred)
  Sun dried tomatoes 145 Gram, drained and dried on kitchen paper (jarred)
  Plum tomatoes 700 Gram, peeled and chopped
  Chopped marjoram leaves 1 Teaspoon
  Chopped canned capers 1 Teaspoon
  Canned anchovy fillets 2 , drained, rinsed and chopped
  Black olives 16 , pitted and halved

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.
Make 2 diagonal slashes in each side of each herring.
Cut each rasher of bacon into 8 pieces and insert into the slashes in the herrings.
Dip the herrings in the milk, then smother all over with the oatmeal.
Lightly spray a frying pan with olive oil and heat.
Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is softened but still without colour.
Add the Martini, red peppers and sun-dried tomatoes, plum tomatoes, marjoram, capers, anchovies and olives.
Simmer for 10 minutes.
Tip this mixture into a baking dish, big enough to accommodate the 4 herrings.
In the same frying pan, spray with a little more olive oil and pan-fry the herrings for 1 minute on each side.
Remove the herrings and place on the pepper mix and bake for 20 minutes.
