The Terumas HaDeshen's Herring

It is recorded in Sefer Leket Yosher that the author of the "Terumas HaDeshen", the great Rav Yisrael Isserlein zt"l (d. 1460), would interrupt his study of Torah and writing of Responsa in order to personally go to the marketplace to purchase the fish L'chvod Shabbos, salting and preparing it himself as well.
