Best pickled fish recipe???

Recommended Posts

I am pickling up a batch of pike and was wondering if anyone would like to share their favorite recipe to do so... I would like to find Silver satin wine as I hear that is a good add to the vinegar mixture. ANyone know where to find it?

Mine is as follows;

Soak for 48 hrs. 5 lbs pike in 8 cups water that has 1 cup of salt dissolved into it.

Rinse fish well and then cover with 7 cups white vinegar and soak in fridge for 24 hrs.

Reserve vinegar and then wash fish.

Heat 6 cups vinegar to boil for 2 min. Then dissolve 2.5 cups sugar into vinegar-let cool to room temp.

Layer fish and sliced white onions in pint size jars- fill about halfway. You will need about 10 jars.

add 1/4 cup pickling spices to sugar/vinegar mix, you may also add 2 tsp mustard seed as well as pepper corns.

Fill rest of jars with vinegar sugar mix and cover- Let sit in fridge for 4 days before enjoying your pickled pike...

Add one bay leaf to each jar.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
