Marinated herring is a very old dish. Almost every Pole has had marinated herring with cold shot of vodka at least once in his life 🙂 This traditional meal was often served as an appetizer, to warm up your appetite, in Polish restaurants before WWII.
Why is this fish so popular? First of all, it’s super healthy; secondly, it isn’t so expensive. And third, it is easy to marinate. That why it became so popular in Poland and Scandinavian countries. As a result, we have developed a variety of delicious marinades to accompany it, each with a unique flavour: Spicy, bittersweet, sweet-spicy and natural.
