Fried Herring with Potatoes
Rinse and pat dry cleaned herrings. Drizzle with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Scrub potatoes and cook, covered, in boiling salted water for 15 minutes.
Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a heavy pan. Coat fish with flour and cook fish, few at a time, for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Add more oil to the pan, if necessary.
Drain and evaporate potatoes. Heat butter in a pan and fry potatoes, covered, for about 5 minutes. Season with salt. Arrange fish on a plate and garnish with lemon wedges. Serve accompanied by potatoes. If desired, serve with green salad.
