Blind Robins

Anyone make these or something similar?
Yes, referring to the salted fish that used to be available shrink wrapped at higher quality drinking establishments beside the little bags of chips and slim jims.
Friend of mine was overly excited about finding them at our local grocery store with a handful of fillets wrapped in a styrofoam tray, but they only get them once a year around Christmas. I found you can buy a 3 lb box from Wholley's in Pittsburgh, and I think they come from a shop called Morey's in Minnesota. Smoked herring fillets with a TON of salt. Have some ideas but wondering if anyone has ever tried to replicate. Not even sure where you would find herring fillets or what would be a substitute?

Try Kippered Herring, most Grocery stores carry them. I like them for breakfast with eggs.

The bars I went to had pickled tripe, pickled pigs feet jelly, (souse) and pickled hot sausage and blind robins. I stuck to the tripe and sausage back then. Oh yeah, they had 15 cent beer and 35 cent shots too.

Just got back from the "party". Three days later there are still 2 fillets stinking up the neighbors fridge and only two of us were partaking in the blind robins. Already burping like when I take my fish oil pills with coffee only in the morning. Any blind robin recipes would be greatly unappreciated.
