I'm confused as to how "salty fish " could mean "pickled fish". Is "דג מולח" a general term for preserved fish? Does "דג מלוח" only refer to herring?
Seems like "pickled fish" should be acceptable. In the grocery this label always means fish in vinegar.
This is NOT the pickled fish in vinegar sauce (German 'Rollmops' and 'sour herring' and such), right ?
We are talking here of a dried very salty fish like is traditionally eaten in Egypt for Easter.
Rollmops is made from rolled דג מלוח and that have a filling, so you got it right
No apparently not.
Rollmops is herring rolled around a pickled cucumber and kept in some vinegar 'dressing' - so it tastes sour
Salted fish - as I know it from Egypt - is dried fish preserved by salt. It tastes extremely salty indeed. So salty that people not used to it might not be able to eat it...
So you are going for the sour version ?
This is impossible! It won't let me type the answer and doesnt have 'salty' as an option.
