  • Soak the herring fillets in enough cold water to cover for at least 12 hours in the refrigerator, replacing the water two or three times.
  • Combine the vinegar, water, juniper berries, allspice, cloves, peppercorns and bay leaf in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes, then allow to come to room temperature.
  • Drain and pat the herring fillets dry, and lay them skin-side down on a work surface.
  • Spread a teaspoon (5 ml) of mustard over each one, then scatter the capers and onion over the mustard.
  • Cut the dill pickles lengthwise into quarters, and then in half crosswise.
  • Place a wedge of pickle at the narrow end of each fillet and roll the fillets up into small, thick cylinders.
  • Secure the rolled fillets with one or two toothpicks.
  • Pack the rolled fillets on their sides in a glass dish in one or two layers-do not use a metal container.
  • Pour the marinade over the herring, cover the dish with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 5 to 6 days before serving.
  • To serve, arrange them on a platter or on individual serving plates and garnish with onion rings and parsley.
