Rügen Fisch Herring Fillets in Horseradish Sauce


Dan used to travel for business to Germany (Munich and Düsseldorf) on a regular basis and the things he misses the most are the beer (of course), one spectacular herring sandwich from a street vendor, and the vast array of thoroughly delicious and surprisingly inexpensive Rügen Fisch products available at every supermarket and bodega.

Lemon and hot pepper get all the glory in the sardine world, but we are and have always been big fans of cream and horseradish as a magic blend for fish.

    Quality of the fish was very good, unfortunately if you like horseradish with a little kick this is not the brand for you. With that said I did enjoy… as the fish was of good quality!

    Very good tin but *very* light on the horseradish. I caught a slight hint of it on the first bite but didn’t really detect any after that. The tin would probably be better off being named ‘Herring Filets in Cream Sauce’ … but since they mention horseradish, I’d imagine most folks will be let down a little here. I enjoyed half of it as-is but then added some wasabi to the tin and definitely liked it more. Regardless of horseradish, the overall Rügen Fisch herring texture, the fish quality, the huge size of the tin relative to the low price … it’s pretty much an unbeatable combination.

    If you love canned herring, buy this tin. If you love Rügen Fisch herring and want to try them all (like me), buy this tin. If you happened to find $3.50 between couch cushions, buy this tin.

    But if you’re here because you *love horseradish* … well, you should either (1) still buy it and add your own, or (2) find a different tin where the horseradish is more prominent. For me, I love all of the Rügenherring options so I’m happy to have tried this one but probably won’t reorder it over some other favorites (looking at you, Rügenmustard).

    These are probably better than I will make them sound. I was hoping for more horseradish and less cream. What I got was mostly cream, almost no horseradish. To be fair, I expected that from the tin before going in so it wasn’t a surprise. While this tin just isn’t to my tastes, that’s not to say it isn’t good. The quality of the herring is great. Much more soft and moist than King Oscar Kipper Snacks. I really enjoy the Rügenfisch Herring in Mustard Sauce and the quality of this tin is on par with that of the “in Mustard Sauce”. If you like creamy sauces with you fish and a hint of horseradish, this is a no-brainer. Just get it. If you, like me, don’t care for fish in cream sauce, you can skip this one.
