Wild Alaska herring
Salt & brown sugar
White wine vinegar
Natural cream cheese
First, lightly cure the herring with equal parts salt and brown sugar - enough to totally cover the fish. Cure for 1 hours, then rinse under cold water and dry.
Meanwhile, cut the onion into 1/2" thick slices and put in a sauce pan. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Allow to cool to lukewarm. Pour over cured and rinsed herring, refrigerate overnight.
Smear each bagel half with cream cheese and place three herring fillets on each bagel slice.
