Poles love herring -- pickled, creamed, fried, whole, fillets -- and in this rollmops appetizer - rolmopsy. Store-bought pickled herring can be drained and wrapped around your choice of dill pickles, pickled mushrooms or onion. This makes a great starter course anytime of the year but especially for Polish Christmas Eve or wigilia and New Year's Eve celebrations.
