Pickled Fish


This works great with Northern.  No need to take the bones out!  The salt will take care of them!


Filet and skin fish.  Cut in 1 inch pieces. 

Put 5/8 cup pickling salt in bowl per quart of fish. 

Cover with white vinegar.  Let stand for 5 days. 


Use a glass bowl not metal.  Put it on the counter and place a plate or other cover over the top. 


Drain fish and rinse with cold water.  Soak in cold water for 1 hour.  Drain. 


Pack in jars:        1 layer of fish

                           1 layer of onions, etc. 


Make brine:

        1 cup sugar                         1 cup port wine

        1 cup white vinegar            2 tbsp. pickling spice


Bring to boil, remove from heat and cool. 


Pour in jars over fish.


Best is left for a week or so before eating. 

Keeps well for a long time in refrigerator.
