The Simplest Renga Baladi
By yasmine • December 30, 2015
Such a simple and tasty recipe that takes us back to our childhood and still makes an amazing entertainment dish. Serve it next to tahini and small Shami loaves for your guests to attempt their own sandwiches – they won’t have enough!
Buy the herring already smoked and tightly packed from the supermarket (I prefer this since it is cleaner and has minimum fishy smell) or get the fish (1kg), wrap in foil and place in the oven on 180C for about 20 minutes (or until skin starts falling off). Then peel the skin and debone the fish and let it cool before cutting into strips and marinating.
- 500 gram herring smoked fish - رنجة مدخنه
- 3 stem spring onion - بصلة خضراء
- 1/2 cup olive oil - زيت زيتون
- 2 large lime (juiced) - ليمون بلدي
- salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
- 1 handful rocket (roughly chopped) - جرجير افرنجى
Step by step
- In a medium bowl, mix olive oil, lemon, chopped spring onions, salt and pepper.
- Cut the smoked herring in finger length strips and soak them in the olive oil mix. It should marinate in the fridge for an hour or overnight.
- When serving, add the rocket to the mix or on the side. Also, serve baladi bread or small Shami bread and tahini with garlic for an extra twist.
