Our kippers are smoked from winter catches of Atlantic Cornish herring. They are all naturally cured with salt and smoked over oak chippings. The parsley butter is great with them, but it would work with pretty much any fish. This is my Dad’s dream breakfast!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 good-quality kippers
a drizzle olive oil

For the tomatoes

Quantity Ingredient
8 plum tomatoes, halved
a drizzle olive oil
70ml sherry vinegar

For the parsley butter

Quantity Ingredient
250g unsalted butter, softened
2 medium shallots, peeled and finely chopped
5 tablespoons chopped curly parsley
1 lemon, Finely grated zest and juiced
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. To make the parsley butter, place all the ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly until evenly combined and set aside.
  2. Preheat your grill to the highest setting and oil a grill tray. To prepare the kippers, remove their heads, using a sharp knife. Place the kippers on the oiled tray, skin side down, and season with a little pepper. Drizzle with a little olive oil and grill for 5 minutes. Remove the kippers from the grill and leave to rest for a few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, lay the tomatoes on a baking tray and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and the sherry vinegar and place under the grill for 6–8 minutes until the tomatoes begin to collapse and brown.
  4. While the tomatoes are grilling, remove the bones from the kippers; they should pull away easily from the head end. Spread the parsley butter evenly on top of the kippers. When the tomatoes are ready, remove them from the grill and put the kippers back under the heat for 3 minutes.
  5. Serve the kippers on warmed plates with a few spoonfuls of the melted parsley butter from the grill tray spooned over and the grilled tomatoes on the side.
