I suspect that it's nearly impossible to label any recipe as uniquely "Russian" or "Polish" because virtually all of what Fieldgate refers to as "this part of Europe" was once part of the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth, which at its height extended from the Baltic eastward almost to Kiev.

I'm curious which translation tool you used for the title. The first letter looks like a typo, as in your Russian version it isn't an 'm', it's a 't' in lower case, so the word comes out as 'tarinovannaya' instead of marinovannaya (маринованная). Also, you've used diminutive form 'селедка' while the basic form would be 'сельдь'. Although, I think, the diminutive form can be quite common too.

24Fieldgate, you caught an error that I failed to notice. I didn't use a translation tool; I used a Cyrillic keyboard. I began the title of the OP with the Russian words, and had a capital M at the beginning. Then I decided to use English first, with the Russian in parentheses. There was no longer any need for a capital letter at the beginning of the Russian name, so I deleted the upper-case M and typed in a lower-case m. I have read it as an m since putting it there, simply not thinking. As to the diminutive form versus the basic form, that came from the recipe itself.
Editors sometimes make dumb mistakes!

Thanks, I supposed something like that. I still admire your skills, as I presume you'd never had Russian and cirillic alphabet at school.

26Knowing that herring isn't much popular outside Europe, I found this blog made probably by a tourist and for tourists. The Netherlands is big on herring and they have their own traditions where herring is featured as main or only dish. I've never tried eating herring like they do in the video though, so that's new to me too.
In Hamburg, Germany there's a famous Fischmarkt (fish market) where the most popular fast food is herring roll (bread roll with only herring filet inside).
Here's a picture from our own Midsummer party when the traditional dishes are made from/with herring.

Not until I was a university student, although I had seen Russian for years. I grew up in a two-flat owned by my Russian grandparents; they lived in the upstairs flat, and we lived downstairs. My grandfather read the Chicago Tribune and two Russian newspapers, Новое Pусское Cлово (New Russian Word), still in print today, and Русский Голос (Russian Voice), long defunct. An uncle tried to teach me a little Russian when I was in high school, but I never had enough time to devote to it.
