TEMPLE’S JANSSEN’S TEMPTATION

Gotta love the name. This is basically scalloped potatoes with added pickled, smoked or salted fish. Normally it calls for anchovies but I used smoked herring instead. Great cold weather dish. Ingredients: 1 herring per person 1 medium potato per person 2-3 onions Breadcrumbs Whole milk Preparation: If you are using whole, unsoaked herring, follow instructions and start the day before; fillet and set aside. If using commercially packed, filleted herring (recommended), proceed. Thinly slice (use a mandolin if you have one) the potatoes and onions. Cut the fillets into bite-sized pieces. Butter a baking dish and place a layer of potatoes and onions; dot with herring pieces and pour in enough milk to barely cover. Repeat until you finish with a layer of potatoes/onions and herring, pour a bit more milk over them. Sprinkle generously with breadcrumbs and bake in a medium oven until golden brown and the milk has cooked the potatoes and onions (they should be tender to the fork). We served with buttered peas.
