Raw herring?

Hi,
Are you using raw herring for this recipe and only "cook" it by marinating?

Thanks,

I reckon the only way to do this herring if it's salted, the way we do it in Eastern Europe. Sometimes it enough just some white pepper, olive oil and onions mixed it well and leave it for a few hours in a frige it goes well with boiled steaming potatoes and sour cream
