How To Make Herrings in Oatmeal with Mustard Recipes

How To Make Herrings in Oatmeal with Mustard Recipes - More years ago than I wish to remember I was in Lossiemouth in Scotland. The trip was made memorable by the town's celebration of the lifting of an embargo on herring fishing.

As a fishing town which crowns an annual Herring Queen, the people of Lossiemouth had a lot to celebrate.

You'll celebrate too, when you taste this herring dish, kindly supplied by The Fish Society.

4 herrings
80ml / 3fl oz mayonnaise
1 dsp Dijon mustard
1 dsp tarragon vinegar
1 lemon, halved
115gm / 4oz oatmeal
Salt and pepper

* Add mustard and vinegar to mayonnaise. Stir until blended. Taste and add more if necessary. Once to your taste, set the sauce aside.
* Make two shallow incisions in each side of the fish. Squeeze lemon juice into incisions.
* Season with salt and pepper.
* Dredge fish in oatmeal and press the oatmeal into the skin.
