To make this dish, melt a slab of butter (approximately 50g), and add a small handful of chopped parley, juice of half of lemon and the grated rind of a quarter of a lemon. Adjust the measurements to suit your tastes.

Put aluminium foil on a tray and heat your grill. Places two smoked kipper fillets on the tray (skin-side down), brush with olive oil and grill until brown and spitting. Usually ready in 4-8 minutes.

Pour over the melted butter and serve, ideally with brown toast.
