Solomon A Gundy

This is an amazing hor d'oeuvre that is spicy and very filling. This is very popular for mid-afternoon snacks, late night munches and fine accompaniment.


Ingredients



  • 1 lb. Smoked Herring
  • 1/2 dozen pimento (all spice)balls
  • 1/2 cup Vinegar
  • 1 Large Onion (chopped)
  • 1 Scotch Bonnet Pepper or Habernero Pepper
  • 1 Stalk Escallion
  • 1/2 tsp. Thyme
  • 4 tbsp. Oil
  • 1 tsp. Sugar

Procedure



  1. Bring water to boil after which you add the smoked herring to the water, allowing to boil for 15 minutes. This process will remove some of the salt from the fish. Discard the water.

  2. Warm the vinegar with the pimento and sugar on a low fire and stir occasionally to help the sugar dissolve. Do Not Boil.

  3. Remove bones and skin from the herring.

  4. Add the chopped onion, oil, peppers, escellion and thyme to a blender and puree for a minute.

  5. Ensure that he sugar is dissolved into the warm vinegar and then remove the pimento seeds.

  6. Add the fish and vinegar solution to the rest of the ingredients already in the blender and puree for another minute.

  7. Based on the consistency you desire, add more or less time to the puree period.


Serve with Crackers, pita bread or wraps. To add volumne and intricacy to the spicy concoction you can cream cheese or mayonnaise.
