I have to admit I love pickled herring. Not so fond of lutefisk, however. You have to draw the line somewhere.
Pickled herring has a rather strong resemblance to food. I like it a New Years, with cream cheese and onion bagels! Lutefisk ... well ... the process of applying lye to fish quivers my gullet.
I don't want to eat pickled herring either! Yuck!
