"My father claimed that my mother seduced him with herring—and then never served it again. He loved that fish, and he waited eagerly each year for the New Catch Holland Herring to arrive. If you think about the delicate flavor of sashimi compared with cooked fish, you get some idea of the New Catch's subtlety. The taste is both sweet and briny, and the texture has a remarkably tender, almost buttery quality. The season will be over in a couple of weeks, but you can order New Catch now from Russ & Daughters. If Dad were still around, I know exactly what I'd be getting him for Father's Day."
