Herring in Cream Sauce

This is a lovely dish any time, any place.

You will need:
8 pickled herring fillets

1/4 cup of Mayonnaise

2 Tablespoons of whipping cream

1/4 tsp of sugar

1/8 tsp of lemon pepper

1/8 tsp of worchestershire sauce

1/2 cup of finely chopped red onion

1/2 cup of fine chopped sliced leek

fresh dillweed

coarse black pepper

Drain the herring and reserve a tablespoon of its marinade.

Combine your mayo with the cream, sugar, half the dill, lemon pepper , Worchestershire sauce and reserved marinade and mix together.

On a nice plate, arrange the onion and the leek and some dill in a pleasing arrangement.

Top with the herring filets and then drizzle on the cream sauce.

Grind fresh coarse black pepper on top and garnish with more dillweed on the very top.

Shaved carrot also makes a nice presentation.

To make it extra special, top with a large dollop of red Caviar.

Make sure it is not *real* caviar as that is from Sturgeon which is not a kosher fish.

But there are kosher caviar types out there that are very nice and made from Salmon roe. Look for that kind.
