Fried pickled herring – typical Swedish summer dish

It’s Midsummer today and I thought you would enjoy taking part some of the Swedish Midsummer food served in almost every home.
Midsummer derived from the Viking age and it is always in a Friday at the end of the month of June.
Fried pickled herring
10 herring fillets adjusted
2 eggs
3 cups cream
4 cups rye meal
1 red onion sliced
2-3 laurel
1 carrot thinly sliced
white peppercorns
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
100ml vinegar
200ml sugar
300ml water
Mix eggs and cream / milk in a bowl and add the fillets. Let it sit overnight. Turn the fillets in coarse rye flour and fry them in butter and oil with meat side down first.
Let the fillets then drained. Make the law by whisking together the ingredients.
Share fillets in half to less flounders. Layer the onion and carrot into the bowl with the spices. Then turn over the law. Place a plate over the pickled herring and leave for about 1 day before serving.
