Danish Herring

250 gm salted herring

125 ml oil

125 ml sugar

250 ml vinegar (brown makes a richer colour, but for pesach I use white)

250 ml tomato sauce

1 1/2 cups of diced apple (I use red)

1 1/2 cups of finely diced onion
Cut herrings into bite size pieces. Mix all the ingredients together and store in a non-metal container. Danish herring is best made at least 2 days in advance.

  1. Am anxious to source some bottles of Danish Herring or if not available some salted herring. Please advise if you can help.

    1. You can get from Feigel, Tiberius Fish Emporium and Dagfish Kosher Deli in Johannesburg, I am not sure about anywhere else. PicknPay Hypermarket Norwood also has at their Kosher deli counter
