Herring have been a staple food source, especially for northern Europeans back to 3000 B.C.E. There are numerous ways the fish is served and many regional recipes.
Herrings can be eaten raw, fermented, pickled or cured by other techniques. A rollmop is a cured herring fillet, rolled up and preserved in vinegar which is flavored with onions and spices.

Sung to the tune of "I'm In the Mood for Love":
When I'm In The Mood For Love (You're In The Mood For Herring)
When I'm in the mood for love,
You're in the mood for herring.
When I'm in the mood for herring,
You're in the mood for love.
Love is a fragile thing,
Delicate and elusive.
Herring is not conducive
When I'm in the mood for love.
Why stop to think of herring?
Let's let our passion flower.
Then darling, if you're still caring,
You can have herring in half an hour.
(That's the bitter laughter of married people that you're hearing now.)
Herring can always wait.
Herring does not mind waiting.
Meanwhile I'm marinating!
I'm in the mood for love!
