Boquerones is a spanish traditional tapas made from sardines, this recipe is with fresh herring wich has a slightly different taste but either one works fine.
Fresh herring filets
Lemons (for lemon juice)
Pull the skin of the herring and rinse in cold water, marinate the herring in lemon juice until the flesh has turned white all the way through the filet. Discard the lemon juice and marinate the herring in olive oil, chopped parsley, chili and a little bit of garlic. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper before serving.
Pestomarinated beansSupersimple and works on it´s own or as a side to almost anything, and if you´re feeling lazy just buy some good pesto and precooked beans and mix. If not you´ll need the follwing.
Soak the beans in water overnight, discard the water next day and simmer in new water with chicken stock, bay leaves and thyme. When cooked strain the stock (this can be saved and used for soup bases) and season the beans with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Blend it all, I use some arugula as well because with only basil I think it sometimes can be a bit to intense, and I also like the hint of pepper the arugula adds.

Momofuku quick salt picklesFirst of all, thanks David Chang for allowing me to steal this recipe. It´s the easiest pickle recipe I ever tried and they are very versatile and can be served on their own, to ramen noodles, tacos, pulled pork, burgers, you name it.
In the original recipe there is only cucumber but I usually add a fennel as well since I think it goes great with the cucumber and is excellent for pickling, so let´s go!
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Cut the vegetables in slices and combine with the salt and sugar, let sit for ten minutes, adjust salt and sugar to taste, you can rinse if they are to salty or sweet. Serve within a few hours.
Fried herring with garlic mayonnaise & lemon
Fresh herring (sardines works well if you can´t find herring)
Oil for frying
Mix salt with water to a brine with about 2% salt level. Remove the skin from the herring and put the herring in the brine for 2 hours.
Crush some garlic and mix with mayonnaise, season with salt and pepper.
Heat the oil for frying and remove the fish from the brine, pad the fish dry with som kitchen paper and dust with wheat flour, make sure every inch of the fish is covered. Fry the fish in the oil until golden, remove and sprinkle with salt.
Fry some parsley in the oil, add just a little a the time and be very careful and keep away from the oil because it will splash. Crush the parlsey over the fish and serve.
Grilled plums with brie & honey
This dish also works really well as an seperate but a little bit unusual cheese dish. Try to find firm plums so the don´t get to mushy when you grill them.
Cut the plums in half and brush with a little bit of oil, grill for about five minutes each, cut the cheese in slices and put the plums on top. Season with black pepper and put some honey on top.
Grilled parsnips with almond & arugula pesto

Blend almonds, garlic, arugula for a few seconds. Add the cheese and oil and season with salt and pepper. Put a spoonful of pesto on each parsnip.
Soft boiled egg with soused herring & onion
Soused herring (matjessill in Swedish, soused according to Google)
Boil the eggs for 5-7 minutes, cool in water peel and cut in halfes. Cut the herring in smaller pieces and top each egg half with one or two pieces. Put the onion on top and then sprinkle with chopped chives.
