Sahnehering is a traditional German dish with either salted or pickled Herrings fillets, apples and onion in a spiced marinade of cream, yogurt and fresh herbs. We used Bismarckhering Fillets
for this recipe but you can as well use Baltic herrings or matjes fillets. Sahnehering is as well known as Heringsstipp was known in the 19th century as poor people's food but when the German chancellor Otto Graf Bismarck developed a liking for Herring it became quite popular especially in northern Germany and the Rhineland where it is often enjoyed on days of fasting like Good Friday for example. The dish is traditionally served with Pellkartoffeln / jacket potatoes that are peeled just before the meal.

My carolina reaper chicken curry was extremely yummy and of course quite hot. This is not surprising with the Carolina Reaper chili being regarded until recently as the hottest chili in the world.
