– To make it easier to clean the herring from the bones, you should wrap it in a napkin and hit it on the table several times with force.
– Onions – the more, the sweeter. And it is better to use white lettuce, not yellow, onions. If the taste of the onion is bitter, pour the chopped onion with boiling water for 1 minute so that the bitterness disappears, and drain the water. You can then drizzle the onion with vinegar to give it a pickled flavor.
– Mayonnaise – the fatter, the better.
– Apples for herring under a fur coat should be taken hard and sweet. After rubbing on a grater, you can sprinkle with lemon juice.
– Jewelry for herring under a fur coat – mayonnaise, green onions, parsley, olives, green peas.
