I grew up in North-Rhine Westphalia, in Germany, where this is eaten quite regularly. I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar as it didn't have a home and I thought it'd be nice to actually make this recipe, also known as Herringsstip, as I usually just buy it ready made. I'll update once I've made it, but if you make it before me, please let me know what you think!
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup yogurt
- 1⁄2 lemon, Juice Only
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sugar
- 2 small onions
- 2 medium apples (Tart)
- 8 herring fillets, Marinated
- 2 teaspoons dill, Fresh OR
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dill weed, Dried
- Blend thoroughly sour cream, yogurt, lemon juice and sugar.
- Peel onions and cut into thin slices.
- Peel and quarter apples, remove cores and cut into thin wedges.
- Blend onions and apples with sauce.
- In a dish arrange herring and apple-onion mixture in layers.
- Cover tightly and marinate in refrigerator for 5 hours.
- Sprinkle with dill before serving.
I didn't grow up in Germany, but was lucky to be exposed to the quisine as I grew up in the US. This is great & so worthy of 10 stars! I admit I doubted the apple & how much it would contribute. I was so wrong! All the flavors & textures just work for each other! I didn't bother to layer & just combined all ingredients, including the dill. All that said, I must add that I prob wouldn't do this again ... BUT I would buy the commercially prepared in sour cream herring product & add your variations, beginning w/Step 4. I guarantee it will happen! Yummy!
This was perfect. I had just bought a big jar of herring packed in sour cream, so I got really excited when I found this one. Great combinations of flavor.
Also known as "Herringstip" in the region of North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany .:) I love this recipe it is outstanding with just some boiled red potatoes peeled hot. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM :) ~Ri
