Surely they're just like smoked mackerel?

So have them in a salad etc.

Soak in water or milk for few hours, then cut into 3cm pieces. Layer fish and chopped ( or thinly sliced) onions in a jar, add bay leaf, sone peppercorns and allspice grains and fill up to the top with oil ( sunflower, rapeseed). Fish needs to be tightly packed not floating iyswim. Leave in the fridge for between 24- 48 hrs and voilá, śledzie w oleju! Serve with rye bread or new bolied potatoes. And vodka wink

Sorry just seen the Tesco logo so that answers my question. Are you in Poland?

I was in Holland recently and are some delicious lightly brined herrings. They just serve them with chopped onion and pickles. I would also turn them into a salad with new potatoes, chopped onion and maybe some dill. Which shop did you find them in?

Ooooh I don't know if they're already cooked!

Are they cooked already?
I'd do them in a huge salad with lots of mixed leaves, tomatoes, cucumber, beetroot and a horseradish dressing

I think shallow frying them could work too. I don't think I've ever eaten anything that didn't taste nice fried!! 🙊

They are in rapeseed oil. I'll take a photo.

I am guessing here, but I would suggest that the salt was to preserve them, not to flavour, so I would soak them in fresh water for half an hour, pat them dry and then fry them. I remember my Father used to salt runner beans when the freezer got too full and when they were boiled up they tasted so much fresher/better than frozen ones would have done.

I'd have said in a kedgeree type dish but that's not low carb

Oh, I love herring (I'm Danish). But I am not familiar with salted herrings. Are they in a brine? Or ar they like fresh fish fillets?

And don't say bin them!!! 😩

I picked them up yesterday from the reduced section thinking that fish was fish. But now I'm looking at them and I'm wondering what to do 🤔

I'm on a high fat low carb diet, so I could fry them off. Otherwise I tend to eat a small amount of dairy and meat, lots of fish and vegetables and good oils.
