When avocados first appeared in Russian stores, most people had no idea what to do with this exotic and weird… fruit? or vegetable? Nobody had a clue. But lack of knowledge did not stop people from experimenting. Avocados were boiled, fried, baked and put into soups. Well, you can imagine the results (or maybe you shouldn’t!). Avocados were interesting, but tasted too bland and too fatty (for a vegetable) to a typical Russian palate.
So, somebody came up with the following radical recipe:
3-4 hard-boiled eggs
1 medium yellow onion
6-8 slices of pickled herring
Chop everything and mix. The key here is what kind of herring you get — pickled is the best one. Don’t get any kind of herring that tastes sweet (no herring in wine sauce, etc.). Try it if you dare!
