Made for the Goddesses of ZWT-9 & because I've loved herring since my childhood. DH is gone on a weekend fishing trip, so I scaled this lovely sammie down to a single serving for my lunch today. Altho made as written, I did alter the presentation slightly. I wanted my tomato on the bottom & the herring where it could be seen. I also used a spec Icelandic bread made for this type sandwich & others like it (Rugkjarnabraud), so what you see in the pic is as authentic as it gets & the taste as good as it gets as well. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

I really enjoyed this. I wasn't sure about the herring. But when topped with a fresh tomato slice and sweet onion rings, I thought it made for a really nice sandwhich. I used fresh baked Quick Swedish Rye Bread, and I think it worked out well. Thanks, Dreamer in Ontario. Made for Zaar World Tour #6.

Very tasty. I spritzed my sandwich lightly with lemon before biting in as I love what lemon does to a rich, fatty fish like herring.

Love these flavours. It's only lunchtime and I've already had three as open-faced sandwiches. I used Creamy Horseradish Sauce in place of butter, and tried both pumpernickel and rye bread. Didn't bother to remove the crusts.

This was really good! I used rye bread and parsley sprigs. I found everything went well together. By the way, I sometimes eat the garnish, if I like them, and I highly suggest others to eat the parsley garnish, because it goes very well with the herring.
