  • ½ pound Smoked Herrings Filets desalted, sliced or cut in small chunks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoon low sodium tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Noubess Fish & Seafood Seasoning no-salt only
  • 1 1 /2 teaspoon Noubess Hot and Spicy Sauce Original, Mango or Pineapple
  • 3/4 - 1 cup water room temperature
  • 1 large onion chopped or sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice


  • To desalt smoked herrings, rinse under running water and place in a large bowl deep enough to hold about 4 - 6 quarts of water. Pour water over herrings and add 2 - 3 tablespoons of cooking white vinegar. Let soak for about 3-4 hours or overnight (if you are not cooking it right away). Remove herrings from water and rinse again under running water. Dry with a towel paper and either slice or chop in chunks and set aside.
  • In a saucepan, heat oil on medium heat. Add desalted herrings and cook in oil while stirring for about 3 - 5 minutes. Add Noubess Fish & Seafood Seasoning, no-salt, Noubess Hot and Spicy Sauce (Original, Mango or Pineapple), tomato paste and stir well. Add water and bring to a boil. Add onion and lime juice. Lower heat and continue to cook until herrings are cooked, about 7 - 10 minutes. Add additional water if necessary. Remove and serve immediately with a side of grains, bread, boil root vegetables or boiled plantains



Make it a full meal and add a salad. Do not add any salt or the dish will be salty.
