At the Connemara Smokehouse we start with fresh herrings that are plump and un-bruised. They are split by hand, lightly cured then mildly smoked for up to 18 hours depending on the weather. The result is succulent flesh with golden skin and a wonderful flavour. They are delicious and nutritious and are a tasty source of protein, calcium, vitamin D, B12 and omega 3 oils.
All the delicious flavour of our world-famous kippers, makes the most wonderful breakfast or healthy snack.
Serves as many as you like…
1 un-dyed kipper per person
Boiling water, to cover
Wholemeal bread and butter, to serve.
Get a jug large enough to hold the kipper without the tail sticking out of the tip. Add the boiling water and cover tightly with kitchen foil. Leave for 6 minutes.
Remove the fish and serve with a small knob of butter and wholemeal bread.
