    I'm sure if you ask Mr Google you will get all your answers. For a quick start: salmon kulebyaka - Google Search

    You can ask him for images, too.

    salmon kulebyaka
    Kulebyaka - a general name for closed pies with different fillings.
    One of many salmon kulebyakas (clickable):

    osetrina pod syrom (grilled sturgeon with cheese covering).
    The name speaks for itself. I would not say that cheese covering is crucial and is a part of traditional Russian cusine, though. Mashroom sause seems more like it.

    fish solyanka
    Solyankas are spicy thick soups, cooked on meat, fish or mushroom broil. Mandatory pickles (and/or similar ingridiends - olives, lemon slices, capers) give it rich and slightly acidic taste.

    Fish Tolcheniki (fish balls)
    Google says it's a Ukrainian dish. Anyway, I've never heard of it, it's probably a regional thing. Russian cuisine uses a similar concept in fish patties (but they are grilled, not boiled).

    I haven't had them all but this list has a lot of my favorites on it.. We always had golubtsi when I was a kid, but someone mis-translated the name so in our house it got called "Golumfky" =)

    About six months ago I made the fish solyanka and just followed the recipe I found, nothing special on my part, but it was so good my neighbors ended up eating most of it and asking us to make more =) good stuff, if you ask me (which nobody did, hehe) ...

    also one more for your list, if it counts.. грибы в сметане .. Грибы в сметане / Кулинарный рецепт .. seems like everyone makes it different but it's so good =)

    приятного аппетита !
