Orkney takes pride in using boneless herring fillets to create exceptional rollmop herring. These fillets are carefully rolled with sliced onions and skewered with wooden pegs before being generously coated in a delectable sweet marinade.
The herring used in these rollmop fish are sourced from the pristine and chilly waters of Orkney, Scandinavia, ensuring their exceptional quality and freshness. Not only are they incredibly delicious, but herring also serves as a highly nutritious food source. Rich in long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, herring supports a healthy heart and is a recommended part of a balanced diet. NHS guidelines encourage the consumption of two portions of fish per week, with one being an oily fish like herring.
In addition to its omega-3 content, rollmop herrings are a fantastic source of protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Its versatility lets you incorporate it into your favourite salads or enjoy it on a slice of rye bread. Although we must admit, it's rare for these herring delicacies to make it that far. They are typically devoured straight from the pot, a testament to their irresistible taste and quality.
