Herrings are very popular in Poland at any time of the year. No wonder they made their way to the Christmas Eve meat-free table.

How to Make Śledź w Śmietanie:

  1. If using herring filets in salt brine (herring a la Matias), they have to be soaked in water to remove the excess salt.
  2. Place the herring filets in a bowl and cover with cold water. Let soak for at least one hour.
  3. In the meantime, cut the onion in half and thinly slice each half (or use a mandoline for even slices).
  4. Place the slices in a strainer and run a pot of freshly boiled water through the onions to slightly soften them and take away the sharpness.
  5. Drain the herrings and pat dry. Cut into bite size pieces. Place in a mixing bowl.
  6. Once the onions have cooled, shred the apple and add both to the fish.
  7. Add the sour cream immediately to prevent the apple from turning brown.
  8. Add pepper and mix well.
  9. Cover and cool in the fridge for at least an hour.

Note: When ready to serve, boil peeled potatoes. Place the hot potatoes on a plate and top with the cold fish mixture. Enjoy!
