Odessa-Style Forshmak, IRBE, 220g / 7.76oz
Forshmak is probably the most authentically Jewish herring recipe.
The word itself is Yiddish for “pre-taste”–that is, an appetizer, meant to set your taste buds going.
There are many varieties of forshmak–probably as many as there were shtetls in Eastern Europe.
Forshmak for many is a dish loved since childhood.
It consists of small pieces of chopped herring, which are mixed with a small amount of onions and potatoes.
Such a delicacy can be served on a festive table
