I want this dish to take you to my childhood. VMinst a couple times a week we got this dish. It is also suitable as a meze or tapas. Can you not get hold of herring, which is very difficult even in Sweden, if you live wrong, so it works with other small fish such as sardines. Unfortunately, this type of cooking has become unfashionable. Why I do not understand. Maybe it takes some time and not for the microwave.
600 g gutted herring and other small fish such as sardine, without backs, fins head
0.5 ml vinegar
2 cups water
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tsp salt
5 white peppercorns
1 bay leaf
Sprinkle with salt and dill on the fish flesh side. Roll up the skin side outwards. Add rollers tightly in a low pan. Boil the ingredients for the law. Pour it hot over the fish. Cover the pan and simmer for about 5 minutes. Let herring cool in the liquor, if it is to be eaten cold. Preferably allow the fish rest for a few hours in the law before serving.
