Description of preparation:
I would like to suggest preparing “Herring under a fur coat” for the Year of the Dragon in the form of this mythical creature. An original and spectacular variation of everyone’s favorite salad. A delicious dragon served in New Year’s will definitely delight next year’s patron. Be sure to prepare this dish and surprise your family and friends! If desired, you can arrange any favorite salad this way.
Prepare all ingredients. Boil carrots, beets, potatoes and eggs in advance and let cool. You can buy herring fillets ready-made in the store, or you can cut the fish yourself. Be sure to remove all visible pits.
Grate the potatoes on a coarse grater and place the first layer in the shape of a future dragon. The plate should be flat and large enough. Salt the potatoes and brush with mayonnaise.
Place diced herring fillets on top. Lubricate with mayonnaise.
Cut the onion into cubes and pour boiling water over it for a minute to remove the bitterness. Then squeeze lightly and add the next layer. Season with salt and pepper as desired and brush with mayonnaise.
Place coarsely grated carrots on the onion. Salt and grease with mayonnaise.
Next add the grated eggs. Salt and grease with mayonnaise.
The last layer is beets grated on a coarse grater. Distribute the beets not only on top, but also on all sides. Season with salt and mayonnaise, then use a spoon or small spatula to give the final shape. Don’t forget to make an indentation on the muzzle for future eyes.
Using kitchen scissors, cut triangles for the spine and oval blanks for the eyes from the solid part of the Chinese cabbage. You can also cut small horns and claws from cabbage.
Make the pupils from olives and the nostrils from green peas. You can add ears from the hard part of the Chinese cabbage, and from the top, make wings for the dragon. Design and imagine, create your own mythical character!
“Herring under a fur coat” is ready for the Year of the Dragon. Bon appetit and Happy New Year 2024!
