when you say roll mop I think of pickled herring?

I'm sure when I was a kid I had salted herring with potato, raw onion and a glass of milk on the side

Baccalao, salt cod was known as Stock fish here, my old man made his own, drying it in our boiler room , Devereaus  have it at the moment. It is a dry fish requiring soaking whereas salties can be cooked straight from the barrel. They also have roll mops [ raw pickled herring] And baked herring [rolled herring baked in pickling spice]  I would scoff em all save for my crappy aged digestive system .

Taken last week in Peel.
