Despite the fact that I come from Asia, I have never heard of herring in Japanese-style. It follows that it is a Polish dish with different places in its name, such as Russian dumplings or Ukrainian borscht. As for the herring itself, it is a great snack for parties, perfectly matching high-proof drinks and simply as a classic home lunch 🙂


3 10-12 cm herring fillets a’la matjas
7 tablespoons of frozen peas
1 small red onion, diced
1 hard-boiled egg, diced
2 hard-boiled eggs for decoration
2-3 pickled cucumbers, 6 cm in size, cut into cubes
3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
pepper to taste
mayonnaise for garnish
sprigs of fresh parsley for garnish


Put the herrings in cold water for an hour and a half (changing the water every 30 minutes) to get rid of the excess saltiness. Dry the fillets and cut them into smaller pieces. Put the peas in boiling water for 3 minutes, drain and wash with cold water to harden (this will give the peas a nice green color). In a bowl, mix peas, sliced egg, pickled cucumbers, 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise and pepper. You don’t have to add salt because herring fillets are salty. Arrange the dish how you want, such as salad first, a piece of herring, egg, a teaspoon of mayonnaise and garnish with parsley 🙂
