Recipe: Herring in Oatmeal (from ANA Fall 2012)
For the third of our re-prints from our newsletter, An Naidheachd Againne, we bring you a recipe to prepare a rather tasty meal – Herring in Oatmeal
Herring are the “silver darlings” that sustained the Scottish fishing industry for over a century, and this very traditional recipe pairs
this nutritious fish with that other Scottish staple, oatmeal.
In Scotland, coarse oatmeal would be used, but small-flake rolled oats should work just as well. If you can’t get fresh herring, mackerel is a good substitute.
