Let's make no bones about it; traditional Dutch herring with chopped, raw onions is an acquired taste. But the Netherlands' most popular fish is too healthy to ignore, so why not try preparing herring in a different way? You may just find grilled herring surprising moreish, for instance. In this recipe for crispy herring with mustard sauce, the herring is cooked using a grill pan or on the barbecue and served with mustard sauce and arugula. This easy dish is ideal for the first summer barbecue of the year.
