The way I see it, the contents of this plate is super Lithuanian. Buckwheat, herring, egg – all well-known ingredients for any Lithuanian. Which got me thinking – what is a truly Lithuanian breakfast? Scrambled eggs with bacon, spring onions, and rye bread? According to Wikipedia, it’s porridge, eggs, and sandwiches.
Note about herring. Simply use a few slices of your favorite pickled herring. Or do what I did, but it’s much more complicated. I had some smoked herring with loads of bones in my fridge. I decided to recycle it, as it was impossible to eat – the bones were really annoying. There’s a reason they don’t smoke herring often. So I chopped it, took the bones out, added some mayonnaise and greens, mixed it all together and got myself an excellent herring spread. Would be perfect for canapés. Seriously, marinated herring isn’t just easier to deal with – it works better with buckwheat, too.
