Herring Omelet Recipe


Herring Omelet

Nice, easy and nutritious dish. Of all the fishes, herring has one of the highest  levels of omega 3. Omega 3 is good for your brains. 

Even though herring is one of the healthier fishes, it is quite reasonably priced. Good things don't necessarily have to be the most expensive all the time. The less awareness there is of herring and its benefits, the better it is for us!



Herring Omelet
Ingredients
About 100 grams herring, fresh or smoked, diced into cm squares
2 eggs, beaten
¼ onion, finely diced
Oil

Directions

  1. Fried herring? I've never tried! We eat it pickled (marinated) in brine or in oil. I am not sure I can get fresh herring... or smoked for that matter... :-(

    1. No, the herring is raw when added to eggs. It cooks fast though. Pickled herring (in brine and other liquids, not oil) is very common here, almost one of the national dishes:)

    1. I guess herring is popular or easily available in not many countries

  3. As I have said this is probably the most original omelet I have ever seen. And I am glad to learn another unusual herring recipe too. I must try it one day. Have you ever counted how many herring recipes you have already posted? I'm sure the number is impressive!
