What the heck do I do with this?

Wikipedia says A kipper is a whole herring, a small, oily fish,[1] that has been split in butterfly fashion from tail to head along the dorsal ridge, gutted, salted or pickled, and cold smoked over smouldering woodchips (typically oak). And... The capelin or caplin, Mallotus villosus, is a small forage fish of the smelt family found in the Atlantic and Arctic oceans. In summer, it grazes on dense swarms of plankton at the edge of the ice shelf. Larger capelin also eat a great deal of krill and other crustaceans.

My guess is that you can eat kippered capelin straight from the can like sardines. I buy "smoked kippers" occasionally and like them a lot. I usually eat them with cold sauerkraut or kimchi because the sour of the veggies cuts the oil of the fish nicely.
