....and I don't know what to do with them. They have been in the freezer for a couple of months now and they are starting to make me feel worried and guilty!

I have no idea what to do with them and I'm not even sure if i'll like them. I honestly don't know why I bought them but my only explaination is that I went to a really nice fishmongers and they were the only thing I could afford! Something came over me and i suddenly felt terribly guilty that we very rarely eat fish.

Please someone help me. I am considering throwing them away without even trying because I have no idea how to cook them and I'm worried they'll be a disaster.

Does anyone eat kippers? I've heard they are full of bones? Can anyone reccommend an (easy) recipe?

I like them grilled on very buttery toast
This looks good though

They do have a lot of fine bones but if you pull off the different sections carefully and tidily with a knife you can get off the fish and leave the bones behind.

Yum yum!

They are lovely! Have them for a light supper with some brown bread and butter.

They are lovely but they will stink your house out for WEEKS

Take the bones out
Flake it.

Either have it on a sandwich, mixed with pasta and a little butter or even with scrambled eggs!

Mix the cooked pasta with the fish in the pan just to warm it through.
Or gently toss in a little butter in a hot pan for literally a minute and add to scrambled egg.

yummo - grill on toast maybe with a nice runny poached egg
