Save
Yields1 Serving
 2 egg yolks
 2 finely grated cloves of garlic
 1 olive oil (neutral oil is just fine too)
 1 Dijon mustard
 Juice of 1 lemon
 1 Worcestershire sauce
1

Combine egg yolks, grated garlic, mustard, and a couple tbsp of lemon juice in a large bowl.

2

Take out a few pieces of herring and make it into a paste with the side of your knife (or use a fork- whatever works best for you).

3

Add Smoked Herring to the bowl and start mixing it with your whisk.

4

Ever-so-slowly, start drizzling in your oil. Drop by drop at first, constantly whisking to help start the emulsion. You can slowly start pouring the oil a little bit faster, whisking the whole time, until it’s all been added. The mixture will start to thicken.

5

Then add your salt, pepper, juice from the can of herring, Worcestershire sauce, and Parmesan cheese (as much as you like- we don’t judge!). Whisk to combine and taste for seasoning. We ended up adding the rest of the lemon juice at this point.

6

Pour some over your lettuce (make sure it’s really dry or the dressing will just slide right off!) Use as much or as little as you’d like and toss the lettuce until everything is coated well. Your hands are absolutely the best tool for this job. Then add the croutons and toss again to get them coated.

7

Plate with the rest of the herring and devour!
