Best pickled herring I ever had was actually matjes herring in Holland, hehe. Used to it directly from the barrels on the fish market square, deliciousssssss, and a great hangover cure, along with traditional mustard soup I've never had ceviche!
Oh man that sounds so good. The pictures look incredible, looks a very hearty fish. Embarrassing I've never gotten around to it in truth, as I'm a huge fan of fish. I'd be a pescetarian if I could afford it lol, and if I didn't like steak and bacon so damn much.
Ceviche is wonderful. If you liked what you described of that raw shrimp salad, I think you'd undoubtedly then like ceviche. Sound nearly the same thing, although likely less spices in the ceviche (shame though, as I'm a huge garlic fan) but more cilantro (which I love).
I can eat pickled herring all day. Anything that's been pickled is good to me though
Haha same, I love pickled anything. Big fan of pickled okra in particular, especially from Wickles (expensive though). My weird pickled affinity is beets though, I fuckin love me some pickled beets.
