Hello I’m a Local fish
A very traditional food in the Netherlands. The fish should also be prepared according to the Dutch tradition where the freshly caught fish are gutted onboard the fishing boats, leaving the pancreas in the fish. The pancreatic enzymes perform much of the preservation of the haring, so that the brine they are kept in needs less salt. Dutch herring are traditionally eaten by holding the fish by the tail and dunking it into your mouth with your head thrown back. If that doesn’t seem appealing, haring can also be eaten in bite size pieces or on a sandwich called broodje haring. You can find haring at street stands and shops all around Haarlem and Amsterdam. Just look for the Dutch flag!
