Herring Steckerlfisch

Marinade:

  • 25 g rosemary
  • 25 g thyme
  • 25 g tarragon
  • 50 g green onion chopped
  • 2 T cayenne
  • 2 T paprika
  • 2 T mace
  • 1 head garlic
  • 8 qts smoked canola oil
  • 3# herring, whole, gutted, head on
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced

Mix the herbs and spices with the oil. Smoke the oil at a low temperature so the oil gets the smoky flavor but doesn’t fry the herbs. Cool and add the herring, Marinate overnight.

Remove herring from marinade. Lay sliced lemons inside the cavity of the herring and skewer.

Grill whole herring 4-6 minutes until flesh is slightly opaque.
