Spanish tapas - can you help me identify these ingredients?

Hi all,

Some friends of mine were just married in Spain and we are throwing them a post-wedding party back at home. I'd love to recreate some of the dishes from the trip but am having trouble identifying some of the ingredients. Any ideas?

Here is what I think they could be:

Pic 1) The purple stuff looks like olive tapenade maybe, or eggplant (I didn't taste it so have no idea what it could be) with tomatoes, asparagus and I can't tell what the creamy white stuff is.

Pic 2) The second one looks like anchovy or sardine wrapped around pickled peppers on half a cherry tomato topped with some kind of soft white cheese?

Pic 3) The last one looks like smoked fish with some kind of herb.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!
