Rügen Fisch Smoked Herring Fillets with Pepper, in Brine and Own Juice


Who doesn’t love pepper? It’s the perfect seasoning for tinned herring, and this savory tin is just right for adding at the last time to a pan of scrambled eggs, or just eating right from the tin with crackers or bread. No pantry should be without this ingredient.

    Yum! I mixed this in with scrambled eggs and oven roasted potatoes, peppers and onions. I didn’t have to add more pepper to the eggs or potatoes. The herring seasoning was perfect for me. The herring itself was firm and tasty. I usually eat KO kipper snacks, but I will be more than happy to add this into my herring rotation.

    Solid. They are what you think they are. If you’ve had Bar Harbor Wild Herring Fillets with Cracked Pepper then you know *exactly* what these taste like. I’d not be able to tell the difference between those in a blind taste test and that’s because both are equally tasty.

    Super healthy, moist and flaky, mild-to-moderate note of pepper. I lazily ate mine at room temperature from the tin and they were perfectly fine. A mildly-flavored healthy protein that’s not going to absolutely blow you away but will still leave you quite satisfied. If you use them as an ingredient in a bigger dish (even if that dish is not complicated, e.g. scrambled eggs) then I’d expect that you’ll get even more enjoyment out of this tin.

    The short review: buy this, you’ll love it.

    Longer version: Wow, this is just a perfect tin of fish. Opening the tin, the herring is visually beautiful. Large fillets of herring, skin-side up. Smooth, silvery, and in-tact skin. The flesh side was even a little soft (I expect firmness throughout with smoked herring). The opposite side is predictably far firmer with obvious signs of smoked flesh. They extracted easily from the tin to be placed on some toast with sliced tomatoes. I ate some straight from the tin for review purposes; both applications were just great. The tin, predictably, smells strongly of herring and smoke. The flesh is fairly firm (despite the bit of softness on the skin side). Again, it’s a smoked fish so you’re going to get that. The flavor, 5/5 stars. Perfectly moist, great mouth-feel, smoke that is strong, but not overpowering. The pepper is pretty light, but still noticeable. As is the case with most RügenFisch tins, I sit here asking myself how can it be THIS good and also be THIS cheap? Anyway, go buy this now and listen to the description, “no pantry should be without this ingredient”.
