This is a recipe that we had a lot when we were kids, it was a very popular dish and very cheap. we had ours with boiled potatoes, and a spoonful of the lard it was cooked in. That's all changed now as the lard wasn't good for your arteries. but we did like it. I live in Scotland and we had a lot of scandinavian recipes, as the fishermen traveled far and wide, and herring was in abundance sadly today it's a diferent story it's in very short supply now, and very expensive. You can just use the one kind of oatmeal if you like.
- Dip the herring into the flour and coat both sides.
- Beat the eggs with the milk. Mix together both types of oatmeal on a large flat plate.Dip the herring into the egg and milk mixture, then dip into the oatmeal mixture to coat.
- Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan until the butter starts to brown. Put the herring into the pan skin side first. Cook for a couple of minutes on each side. Serve flesh side up garnished with parsley and lemon.
