Buckling

A buckling is a form of hot-smoked herring similar to the kipper and the bloater. The head and guts are removed[1] but the roe or milt remain.[2] They may be eaten hot or cold.

Origin[edit]

The word may come from the German Bückling or the Swedish böckling, both words denoting a hot smoked variety of the kipper.

Bucklings, bloaters and kippers[edit]

Buckling is hot-smoked whole, bloaters are cold-smoked whole; kippers, are split and gutted, and then cold smoked.
