Scandinavian Pickled Herring Bites
This Scandinavian-style appetizer is a good way to try pickled herring if you've never had it. The potent flavor of the herring is balanced by a dollop of sour cream and the potato slice it's served on.
Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
Note: Pickled herring are herring that have been cured in salt, rinsed and then packed in a vinegar-based marinade that can be flavored with wine, mustard, sherry or cream--any flavor will work in the recipe. Look for it in jars or tubs in the seafood department at most supermarkets.
