Yay herring!


Coming from Swedish stock, I have a soft spot for that fish-of-all-trades, the herring. For me, it's just the pickled stuff in wine sauce, with a pinch of fresh dill. I also take fish oil pills, on the odd chance that it's good for MS or heart health generally. Someday, I hope to try surstromming (fermented herring!) Just try and stop me.

Link to article about herring in The Independent.

Hey there,

Fish oil is definitely good for heart health. I run a blog about fish oil benefits and I have a section devoted to fish oil and heart disease that you may be interested in. Also, I have read reports of successfully treating MS with fish oil... if you want me to, I can find where I read that. Just stop by and leave me a comment!

Warm regards,
Marshall

Try lutefisk - the scandinavian version of gefilte fish. Instead of being brined or gelatined, lutefisk is minced fish preserved by a wash in lye. Of course, it is thoroughly rinsed (one hopes).

Bon Appetit.

I'm all too familiar with lutefisk. When I was a kid, we'd have it for Christmas dinner, in the Swedish fashion with white sauce. My grandfather used to make his own, actually. I think it's cod, though, not herring.
