Right, but the potato serves in the same role of reducing the sense of saltiness / richness (even if it ends up adding salt and allowing you to eat more)

But that was with the hot fish. The cold smoked fish I mentioned, typically served with salad, horseradish or sour cream, lemon wedges. Sometimes little triangles of brown bread and butter, sure. Smoked mackerel often with apple.

Harry Golden hypothesized that the Scots were one of the Seven Lost Tribes of Israel, so the bialies may be there somewhere.
Bere bannoks aren't that far, actually.

I can think of nothing better, with this platter I threw together from Russ & Daughters this past weekend, than a nice bagel, some toasted rye or perhaps some pumpernickel. That's sable, Scottish salmon, Gaspe nova, and whitefish salad.
An apple somehow wouldn't cut it. Nor would 6 pieces of arugula.
