Cold fish recipes? Other than poached salmon...

Does anyone have good recipes for fish that can be eaten cold or in sandwiches? I only know of poached fish, but surely there are others?
I have made sandwiches/wraps/tacos out of tempura style fish. I have also eaten cold (leftover) tempura style fish by itself and also with a dipping sauce.
I have eaten smoked fish cold.
Escabeche/escaviche--there are a gazillion variants. Basically cooked fish (usually fried) marinated in a vinaigrette, sometimes sweet-sour. No recipe to offer off-hand, sorry, but try googling.
Aromatherapy's post triggered another idea. Ceviche. Raw fish, cured with citrus (lemon/lime juice) flavored with "Mexican" style seasonings similar to a salsa.
Any leftover fish I have...usually something like catfish...I just flake and make into a salad as you would a tuna fish salad and use it either on crackers or as a sandwich filling.
I surprised myself a few weeks ago by tackling that one. Bought flounder, fried it, cooked potatoes and onions that were chopped rather largly.
Then over everything I poured a vinagrette made of... damn I can't remember... lemon, sherry vinegar, white wine vinegar, olive oil, and CAPPERS! Marinate and it's great the next day.
