Although they look more attractive on the other side, I always present and tackle my kippers skin-side up as it is easier to peel away the skin and lift the fillets from the bone.


  • 2 large kippers
  • 200 g (7 oz) unsalted butter, softened
  • juice


Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F, Gas Mark 6).

Place the kippers, skin-side up, in a large ovenproof dish and place 50g ( oz) of the butter on top.
