Pickled herring seems to be an acquired taste, because this beloved Scandinavian dish hasn’t quite gone mainstream in the States. It’s a distant cousin of ceviche and an excellent way to enjoy preserved fish. Sneak some onto your next smorgasbord accompanied by rye toasts, hard-boiled eggs, sliced red onion, freshly chopped dill, and a little Horseradish-Cream Sauce.
What to buy: Salted herring can be found online. If you buy whole salted herring, be sure to remove the skin before pickling.
