Healthy, because

The herring brings an extra portion of omega-3 fatty acids, which protect our blood vessels and can reduce high cholesterol levels. In addition, these fats increase our ability to concentrate. The fish also contains plenty of vitamin D, which is involved in the incorporation of calcium into the bones and thus protects against osteoporosis.

Whether fresh on a wholemeal roll or together with potatoes and curd, the marinated herrings taste delicious. Click here for a simple recipe that increases the omega-3 portion with linseed oil.
