I've got some. What do I do with them?
Have a classic English breakfast: eggs over easy, fried tomato, pork & beans on toast,and kippers.
Don't forget the tea.
Have an old fashioned NYC type sandwich:
Thick cut bakery rye with caraway seeds, unsalted butter, thin sliced onion, thin sliced tomato and,
of course, kippers!
I'm another one who LOVES smoked kipper snacks for breakfast!
I just drain the can & place the kippers (whole filets or broken into large pieces) in a skillet with some melted butter along with a couple of eggs & sometimes one or two thick slices of plain ripe or breaded green tomatoes. Not quite an "English" breakfast, but delicious nonetheless!
I like kipper snacks on a Triscuit with mustard, they are sort of like sardines and not really meant to be cooked, they already are.
Open carefully to make sure the juice doesn't squirt on you or you will be hounded by cats and dogs all day. If you have fresh bread (a fresh rye is tasty) , pour off the oil/juice and use for dipping. Annoint the filets with a squeeze of lemon or just fork them up plain. Then carefully seal up the container- quite smelly and a magnet for trash digging night dwellers like racoons.
