A chunky, filling salad full of omega-3's. Rollmops or pilchards can be used, or for the less daring cook, tinned sardines are also good

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for about 10 mins until tender, then drain and leave to cool a little.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the onion, gherkins, vinegar, mustard and fromage frais together in a medium bowl. Add the potatoes, mix well, divide between two plates, then top with the fish. Great with a green salad on the side.

Really enjoyed the unusual Scandi flavours in this dish. Didn’t change a thing although I realised when I plonked my rollmops on top that they came packaged with some pickled onion and gherkin in the ‘rolls’. So next time I might adjust the quantities of onion and gherkin in the potato salad dressing down slightly to allow for that.

Lovely, classic combination with a modern twist. I've also made a variation with chopped green olives instead of gherkins and it was great too. My only problem is that it gets cold very quickly but I can't really heat up the herrings...

it was a lovely dish but there are a lot of strong flavours so be prepared to still be tasting it the next day!
