  Herrings 4
  Tomatoes 1 1⁄2 Pound
  Onion 1
  Shallots 3
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm)
  Mixed herbs 1 Bunch (100 gm)
  Gherkins 4
  Hard boiled eggs 2

Make a tomato puree by simmering the chopped tomatoes with the sliced onion and shallots.
Add the bunch of mixed herbs and the cloves of garlic.
When it is reduced to a pulp put it all through a sieve together with the gherkins and the hard-boiled whites of egg.
Divide the herrings into fillets, put them into this tomato sauce, cook for 5 minutes and "poach" them in it for another 15 minutes but without letting them boil.
Let them go cold in the sauce.
To serve, turn out on a dish, crumble the hard-boiled egg yolks over them, and garnish with capers.
