I had mentioned that I was going to make selaudichi (sp) not sure of the spelling as it is Russian. Made it today...it is wonderful. For those interested in the recipe:
2 12oz. bottles of Herring in sour cream with onions
12 oz. yellow mustard
2 "heads" of fresh dill
4 oz. virgin olive oil (approx. amt)
1 "head" shallots
3 fresh green onions (8 to 9 stalks of green)
1.5 tspns sugar
Blend mustard, olive oil and sugar, cut green onions in 1/4" pieces, mince shallot, blend all together. Wash sour cream off the herring and cut into 1/4" pieces. Blend all together and let marinate for 24-48 hrs. Put in refrigerator when done.
Eat selaudichi on ritz or similar crackers or dark pumpernickel bread.
The only herring I have had is the canned Kippered snacks... canned like sardines.... name brand stuff is good, I bought an off brand that ended up in Duke’s feeding bowl.
I will definitely give this recipe a try, I bet it is much better.
