Baltic herring rolls on a cheese & onion pillow

600 g of Baltic herring fillets

1 tsp of salt

0.5 tsp of black pepper

100 g of dill (chopped)

A drizzle of oil


Onion mixture:

1 onion (large)

1 leek (large; light-coloured part only)

2 tbsp of oil

1 tbsp of lemon juice

Salt and black pepper

100 g of grated cheese


To serve with potatoes or rice and salad


Peel and slice the onion and slice the leek. Warm the onion and leek in the oil in a pan on a low heat for a few minutes. Add the lemon juice, grated cheese, salt and pepper and mix together. Place in a uniform layer in a small oven dish. Place the fish fillets on your preparation surface, skin-side down. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and a little of the dill. Roll up starting from the head and place on top of the onion mixture so that the rolls are ‘upright’. Drizzle with a little of the oil. Cover with aluminium foil or a lid. Bake at 200 °C for 15 minutes. Sprinkle over the chopped dill. Serve immediately with boiled potatoes or rice and a side salad.
