Some aromas transport us directly to childhood memories; this was the case with this recipe for me. As soon as I began my preparation, I was filled with memories of my maternal grandmother. She usually prepared this in her home and I remember that no one liked the smell. At the end of the day, she enjoyed it and didn't pay too much mind to those of us who didn't like it.
She prepared herring with eggs as a kind of brunch and she would sit and enjoy her snack with freshly baked warm bread or boiled tubers like yucca, green bananas or malanga. I'm filled with memories of seeing her sit at the table to enjoy her preparation with great enthusiasm.
Many years passed before I finally decided to try herring, but not like my grandmother prepared it.Instead, I prepared it with a tomato, avocado and onion salad. But I have created my grandmother's recipe many times. So here I leave you with the recipe if you care to try it; it's easy to prepare and super delicious!
