Spring time is here and the sun is shining! For those of you that are greeks I am sure that you have already enjoyed a glass of ouzo or tsipouro with some mezedes/ the greek tapas. The recipe that follows is an amazing meze , really cheap and easy to do.  It can be prepared very quickly if you have already boiled a couple of potatoes. Spice it up as much as you like and enjoy!

1 can smoked herring in salted brine
1 medium onion
2 small potatoes, boiled
1 dry red chilli (optional)
some extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
1 spring onion, finely chopped
lemon zest

1. Put in a food processor the smoked herring, the onion , cut in fourths, the potatoes , 2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oil and the lemon juice. Mix all the ingredients until you have a dense mixture. If you think that the mixture is too dense just add some olive oil or water.
2. Serve immediately by adding some pepper, sprinkling some spring onion and lemon zest.
