Herring is a staple of the Lithuanian cold table. I first tasted this at a holiday party. The hostess rattled off the ingredients and I have been trying to recreate it. The contrast between the sweet-tart apple and the salty fish is quite nice. I like a bit more herring, but this is a nice way to introduce people to an underappreciated fish. I am estimating the servings and time to prepare, and have not included the 24 hour soaking period or chilling time.
