How many ways can you offer a herring? This old formula - immortalised by Dickens* - involves smoking an ungutted herring. Now that is a radical course of action! It’s the only fish bigger than a whitebait I can think of where the innards are served up with the enclosing flesh. To this, they impart a wonderful gamey flavour - ’... a mild yet piquant delicacy’ said fish guru, Jane Grigson. Peggotty would surely have agreed. Ready to eat. *David Copperfield: ’But Peggotty said, with greater emphasis than usual, that we must take things as we found them, and that, for her part, she was proud to call herself a Yarmouth Bloater.’
