Smażony śledź z salsą mango z chili


Cook the rice according to the instructions on the packet

Let's start with preparing the salsa. Pour oil into a hot frying pan. Add the finely diced white part of the leek and the chilli pepper with removed seeds. Fry over low heat, stirring every now and then, for 2-3 minutes. Add finely chopped mango and parsley. Season with salt, pepper, maple syrup or honey and drizzle with lemon juice. Stir gently and remove from the heat.

Rinse the herring, pat dry and rub with salt and pepper. Coat both sides with flour, fry in hot oil until brown. Drain on a paper towel.
Put the mango-chilli salsa on the herring. Serve with rice and your favourite salad.
