Dutch Matjes Herring, Gourmet Quality - Kosher
Dutch Matjes Herring, also known as "Hollandse Nieuwe Haring" or simply "Matjes," is a type of herring that is highly regarded for its delicate flavor and tender texture. These fish are typically caught in the North Sea during the early summer months when they are at their prime. A popular staple in the Netherlands and other Northern European countries, its creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture makes it a favorite among all who try it.
Matjes is typically harvested between May and July when the herring are still young and have not yet reached full maturity. This ensures that the fish have a milder taste and a softer texture. Processed the same day they are caught to preserve their texture, the fish are cured in a simple brine of water, salt, and sugar.
Matjes has a long-standing gastronomic tradition in Dutch and Scandinavian cuisine. It is often served with onions, pickles, and sometimes a sweet, creamy sauce. A popular street food in the Netherlands, herring stands can be found in many cities. With its mild yet distinctive taste, this Matjes herring offers a unique and delicious dining experience.
