How does this come? Is it like Baccalà where you have to soak it to get the salt out? Even if it's ready to eat, there's nothing preventing you from rinsing some of the salt off and creating your own sauce or oil to eat it with.
I've only had pickled herring which is so delicious that it's sinful. Add sour cream and OMG.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
Why is rice a no no? I eat it quite often - as far as I understood it, white rice is a decent carb, with no real downside.

Reason: Adding a recipe
I've used canned herring for making party snacks-- mix with a little cream cheese, scallions, and spices and spread on cucumber slices.
Now if only I could find pickled fillets that aren't swimming in HFCS...
