Kippers - ‘Jug’ Method

This is the easiest way to cook whole kippers. Always try to find undyed kippers.

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at - top-class dishes from beginners upwards



1 Kipper each

Equipment needed: a saucepan big enough for the kipper(s) to lie flat or a heatproof jug deep enough to hold enough water to submerge the kipper(s).


- Bring a pan of water to the boil.

- Turn off the heat, and either submerge the fish in the water or transfer it to a jug - if preferred.

- Either way, stand the kippers for 10 minutes, then carefully remove them and drain them well.

Serve with bread and butter.
