Drain the herring and place in a jar, which has a tight lid.

Mix the remaining ingredients until smooth, and pour over the herring.

Blend well so the herring is covered by the marinade.

Put on the lid and store in the fridge overnight.

This is a bit more fun than the store-bought pickled herring, and imagine the high brag factor:

I did indeed pickle this herring myself!
