Herring

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Herring

Someone was mentioning recently on another thread how hard it is to find soft cod roe - at least, fresh. I haven't seen it for ages.

What about herring? The fish, un-kippered, un-soused, un-pickled,...just errrrm...herring! It was one of my childhood breakfast faves at school and I can't remember when I last saw it let alone had any. While it has a lot of bones, it has a delicious....herring flavour :)

Oh Tomps, such a blast from the past. It was a real Saturday tea-time treat in my youth. Just unadulterated fried whole herring. We loved them. Just taken a look at my on-line supermarket - not a sign of the whole fish, grrrrr!

T'do, yes, amazing. One of those facts you remember from school was that Britain fished enough herring from the North Sea that, if laid nose to tail, would stretch five times round the world! Or was that once round? Anyway a lot of herring and none to be be found today. I once read that during the Cold War when all Soviet fishing vessels were really spy ships not F/Vs, they used to 'hoover' up all the herring and spread them on their fields as fertiliser. Presumably a Cunning Plan worthy of Baldrick! :)

They are seasonal, so perhaps you just have to bide your time.
