Baked Herring

4 Good-sized fresh herring (about 1 1/2 pounds), cleaned and boned
1/2 ts Salt
3 oz Butter
4 Shallots, chopped
1 c Plain yogurt
4 Eggs, separated
4 lg Potatoes, boiled and mashed
1/2 ts Sugar


Sprinkle the boned herring with half the salt, let stand 5 minutes, then rinse quickly and soak in cold water to cover for 1 hour.

Melt 2 teaspoons of the butter in a skillet over low heat and cook the shallots until translucent.

Combine with a third of the yogurt in a bowl.

Drain the fish, cut into bite-size pieces, and add to the bowl with the shallots and yogurt.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the remaining butter in the skillet over low heat and stir in the remaining yogurt, egg yolks and mashed potato.

Remove from the heat.

Beat the egg whites and fold them into the mixture; season with the sugar and the remaining salt.

Spread half the potato mixture in a buttered baking dish, top with the herring mixture, and spread the remaining potato mixture on top.

Bake 45 minutes.
