Raw Herring Ice Cream

Are you travelling to the Netherlands? If so, you may wish to try this Dutch specialty: ice cream flavored with raw herring. Inventor Robin Alting admits that some of his countrymen are hesitant to eat it. That may be a result of the ingredients, which Atlas Obscura lists:

The divisive flavor is a frozen blend of raw herring, onion, sugar, and cream. It’s been described as having the texture of traditional ice cream but the strong taste and smell of herring.

In my opinion herring does not have a strong taste at all. It is delicate and subtle, as is the texture. Dutch herring is not completely raw, it is actually lightly fermented. It sort of melts in your mouth. perhaps that gave the creator the idea.
Making it into an icecream is silly of course, but it does very little harm.
