I was so busy posting and blog hopping yesterday so I had no time to cook. I just opened a canned good, Herring fillets with vegetables garnish in fine spicy sauce from Germany. This is a pasalubong from my BIL.
This Herring fillet in can tastes good. Unlike the local sardines, this one has real veggies and its sweet taste makes it distinctive. Hope my BIL would give us more when he gets home, lol!
What is Herring fish by the way? Herring has been a staple food source since 3000 B.C. There are numerous ways the fish is served and many regional recipes: eaten raw, fermented, pickled, or cured by other techniques. The fish was sometimes known as “two-eyed steak”. Pickled herring is a delicacy in Europe, and has become a part of Baltic, Scandinavian, German, Eastern Slavic and Jewish cuisine. Herring are very high in the long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. They are also source of vitamin D. (source)
