Alternatives to herring
While fresh European herring is a popular ingredient in Polish cuisine, it is not available in Australia. Alternatives include imported pickled herring or Australian Herring, which, while unrelated to European herring, is a suitable alternative.
Five Spice Powder
Five spice powder is a delightful, aromatic spice blend. Should contain star anise, Szechuan pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and fennel.
