Try decorating the top with shrimp, red or black caviar, you can use flying fish caviar, a rose from a tomato with an olive, a slice of egg or halves of quail eggs.

2. Roll. You can prepare rolled herring under a fur coat on a board covered with cling film. The ingredients are laid out on it in reverse order, that is, starting with the beets. We do not spread the herring over the entire surface, but place it in a thick layer only in the center along the entire length. Next, you can simply carefully roll the roll, or you can fold the edges of the beets so that they meet in the center.
