ISO Pickled herring recipes

I like to eat it right out of the jar, but that gets boring. Are there some recipes for the herring pickled in sour cream? Maybe potato pancakes or some sort of appetizer? Thx.

Rosti should go well with the pickled herring.

When I buy it, it doesn't last long enough for me to even think about a recipe - lol!!!

What I truly miss is the now long-gone fish market in Port Jefferson, LI, NY, that every holiday season carried whole filets of pickled herring in fresh sour cream (with lots of onions!) in trays on ice in their fish case. God were those terrific!!! The jarred stuff I have to settle for now doesn't hold a candle to it, but it's better than nothing.

Perhaps a better question to ask is: can I cook w/ pickled herring? or does the pickling process render the fish unusable for cooking in like tomato sauce, or potato pancake or say a soup?

The recipes I am finding on the internet are mainly cold: salads and appetizers. Most of them have sour cream or mayo. Some have boiled eggs and assorted veggies. like peas. Nothing with cooking.

ANy reason to think pickled herring cannot be used in cooking?

One of our Swedish wives in our international women's club prepared a national dish where she layered sliced potatoes, pickled herring, onions, spices, and whipped cream and then baked it. Yum!!!!

The dish is called Janssen's Temptation in English.

It gets a little less boring when you accompany it with a small glass of vodka, straight from the freezer!

You could eat it like they do in Germany, as street food, tucked into a hard roll with plenty of thinly-sliced onions.

As for adding it to food, I would think it would be nice cut up into a cold potato salad, perhaps with cucumber, asparagus, a tart apple, some dill ...?

oh man, this is making me hungry. i prefer the one with wine and onions, but any kind'll do.

pickled herring is good at breakfast, chopped into corned beef hash topped with eggs sunny side up. it's also good fried with homefried potatoes, topped with raw scallions.

or at lunch on a toasted pumpernickel roll, butter, raw onions and "bread and butter" pickles.

i've had it cooked into a creamy-dill potato casserole, but i'm not sure if it was pickled or not.

a google search suggests that most or all of the Janssen's recipes use anchovies. STill, there's no reason to suggest that herring wouldnt fit in there.
