Various salads with fish or seafood.
Brined herring (Dutch new herring or salted herring) with sliced onions and tomatoes is delicious as a pure salad. In Germany they add to the herring sometimes potatoes boiled in their skins, French beans, finely sliced fried bacon, onions but no tomatoes.
Brined herring with onions,
Herring salad with raw herring pickled in vinegar. This Dutch-Jewish recipe consists of a glass pot collared sour herring (rollmops), a glass pot red beets, a sour apple and a couple of extra gherkins in pieces mixed cold together with mayonnaise. Let it rest for a while and serve it cold. Decorate it with parsley. As extra you can add a sliced shallot and possible a litle bit chive and/or pepper. Rollmops can also be eaten as cold snack, without unrolling, or on a slice of white bread. After the jar has been opened (shake first the glass pot up side down), the rollmops will usually keep for 2 weeks, if kept cool in refrigerator.

Tuna from a tin with salt water or olive oil, eventually mixed with vegetables, tastes good on white bread, biscuit or toast. Of course you can use this fish also in a self made salad. Tuna belongs to the family of mackerels. The bigger bluefin tuna from three meter or larger till 1000 kilogram, caught in the Mediterranean Sea or for the coast of Spain, is now past time because overfishing. Now utmost 100 kg for the largest fish. Tuna is not a North Sea fish but Mediterranean, so we import it from Italy usually in tins. Mostly is this skipjack tuna. Left you see a bluefin tuna.
Catched Mediterranean pilchards.
European pilchards (sardines) in salt water, olive oil or tomato sauce in a tin can be used on a slice of bread, biscuit, toast or in a salad. Sardines are a smaller sort of fish, at most 25 cm (10 inches) in length, and are related to herrings. This is a subtropical fish and is imported from Italy. The name sardines came from the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, around which sardines were once very abundant. Sometimes there is made a difference between pilchards for the somewhat larger fish, larger than 15 cm (6 inches) and sardines for the smaller and younger fish. Right you see sardines in salt water and already canned.

A collared herring or rollmops is a pickled herring fillet rolled (hence the name) around a gherkin and conserved, as Bismarck herring, in pickled water with white vinegar and onion rings. After the glass pot has been opened (shake first the glass pot up side down), rollmops will usually keep conservable for two weeks, if kept cool in a refrigerator.
Buckling and kippers are smoked varieties of light salted herring. Nowadays we make difference between steamed buckling (warm smoked) and smoked buckling (cold smoked). Kippers are also smoked herrings, but open fillets without fish bone and warm smoked (Dutch) or cold smoked (British). Fresh smoked these herrings taste the best. You can warm these smoked herrings in the steam above boiling water.
Fried buckling is an other variety of herring and is a smoked fried herring. Fresh herring you can not fry, then almost nothing is left over. You can warm already fried buckling or other fish in a frying pan on low fire in his own fat or with a little butter if needed. The magnetron is not suited to warm fried fishes, because they loose then their firmness and good taste. The popularity of these last mentioned Dutch varieties of herring is alas not so great as in the past. See also Wikipedia: Buckling and Kippers.
