What Is A Kipper?

Instead of referring to the name of a fish, the term kipper explains the ‘kippering’ method of any fish or meat to preserve it. A kipper is a fatty herring that has been cut, gutted, sliced, brined or salted to decrease the water content and afterwards cold smoked. Kippers that are traditionally smoked are pale gold. Kippers are most typically eaten for breakfast in Britain and Ireland.

Frozen Manx kippers can be fried, baked and heated in a big pot of boiling water. To reduce the scent, barbecuing is also encouraged. It was once popularly consumed during tea or supper, most common with metropolitan working-class communities before World War II. The traditionally cured frozen Manx kippers from Frozen Fish Direct are available online via this website and can be distributed anywhere within the UK. All seafood products, including the frozen Manx kippers listed on this website, are vacuum-sealed to maintain the quality before they arrive.

Processing Kippers

The herring is weighed, cut, gutted and washed by a custom-designed machine for around a few seconds. After separating, gutting and cleaning, the herrings are then immersed in brine for about ten minutes to achieve a distinctive flavour and freshness is preserved.
Then, for 6-12 hours, the herring is typically oak-smoked over flames. The completed Manx kippers have a deep bronze hue, with a gentle, salty and smoke-rich flavour. The same technique has been utilized for over a hundred years that gives them their unique taste.

Frozen Kipper Recipe

FAQs

Can Manx kippers be cooked from frozen?
You may get the kipper fillet straight from the freezer then boil the frozen fillet in the bag. This technique retains the texture and flavour of the fish fillets, each time for nicely cooked Manx kippers.
How are you supposed to cook frozen Manx kipper fillets?
Kippers demand less preparation and cooking, and gently poaching them for a few minutes is the better choice.
Use a big water pan and let the water boil, turn off the heat, immediately add the kippers then just leave it there for around 5 minutes, after which drain and serve. You could even grill your kippers if your kitchen has good ventilation, but if it hasn’t, we do not recommend this, because it can end up leaving your house smelling of fish!
The flavour is also concentrated through grilling, which may not be pleasing to everyone. Our frozen Manx kippers are best microwaved directly out from your freezer for around four minutes. Make sure that the food is cooked and hot before consuming.
Can you eat the Manx kipper’s bones?
You may consume the small bones, but if you choose not to do so, start to eat from the tail part then pull each flesh gently towards you, which would loosen the flesh, leaving the bones behind.

There’s no cooking required for canned kippers, but frozen or fresh kippers need cooking. In a pan, you can poach them or just use the more conventional method of poaching them using a jug. You could also broil or grill in the oven, or sauté them.
