Linguine con le aringhe

Last time I went to my fishmonger I found fresh herring fillets at 2.50 € per kilo! Of course I’ve bought a kilo: they are good, healthy and surprisingly cheap!

3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
3 herring fillets, skinned and diced
6-8 cherry tomatoes, diced
few branches of dill
10 black olives
200 g of linguine

Bring to the boil a lot of water for the pasta.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a big pan and fry the garlic. Add the diced herrings, let the m cook for 2 minutes, then add the tomatoes, dill and the olives. Let it cook. In the meanwhile, salt the water and cook the pasta al dente. Drain the pasta and add it to the pan, add the last tablespoon of olive oil and turn everything together.
