2 Herrings fillets per serving ( Tick "fillet my fish" in our preparation methods box )
75g Breadcrumbs (I used Panko)
1 tsp Mustard (or Mustard powder)
3 tbsp chopped Parsely
zest of 1 Lemon, finely grated
juice of 1/2 Lemon
1 tbsp Capers, chopped or whole (I left mine whole)
1 medium Onion (I used red)
Salt & Pepper
Prepare your stuffing: mixing together the Breadcrumbs, Mustard, Parsley, Lemon zest & juice and Capers in a bowl.
Fry the onions in butter, add to the stuffing mix. Check the seasoning
Fill the Herring flaps with the mixture (divide evenly between the 4, don't worry if some stuffing will fall out again while you tie them).
Hold the fillet together with toothpicks or tie with cooking strings.
Bake at the top of the oven @ 220 C for about 15 minutes, no need to turn them, smoother in butter to your liking.
Once done remove the toothpicks serving (leave the string to make the dish look more sophisticated.
Serve with brown bread, boiled potatoes...
