We’re serving up a classic British brunch of kippers on hot buttered toast using a traditional and agreeably easy method called ‘jugging’.

While kippers are perhaps the most delicious – and rather under-appreciated – of oily fish dishes they do have the downside of requiring you to fumigate your entire household every time you grill, fry or bake them.

Start by warming your jug. Then decapitate your kippers (if not already headless), fold each fish and place them standing upright in the jug. Now fill the jug with boiling water, being sure to cover the tops of each kipper. Wait 6 minutes before fishing them out.
