Best pickled fish recipe???

3 posts in this topic

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.

    • I gave mine a week and then mulched.  For me, its kind of a guessing game.  I don't think you want to mulch real warm ground and have the garlic grow too much under that mulch and on the other hand you don't want to let the ground start freezing.  I'm sure there is an ideal soil temp, but I guess I don't know what that is.  I mulched on a morning that we had frost on the ground.  I don't think you want a couple of weeks of warm sun to really get it growing.  
    • I was out on Saturday as well, and boy was it tough. We stuck a couple of fish and missed a couple more right away in the morning, then ran to the access to pick up the third guy, and when we got back to the spot the fish were shut down.

      We marked tons of fish all day but found very few biters. Still a heck of a nice day to be on the water, though!
    • Thanks for the link. I saw another lake on that list that was good bass fishing, but they had discontinued stocking trout several years back. Nice to see they resumed, even if it is only a few hundred. I'm fishing perch lake for sure on Friday, but am looking to add a 2nd lake to fish, since it's so small. Square lake, here on the Minnesota side would be ideal, but I can't get a hold of the DNR regarding trout stocking there. I'm down to an electric motor with my little boat anyway, as I need to do some carburetor work on the outboard.
    • I thought there wasn't any proof it was the russians and it could have been a 400lb guy on a bed.    I can't help but find some humor in the dems tactics, playing the Trumpers like a fiddle, and how the repubs are butthurt about it.   Plant some dudes in planned parenthood t-shirts and then watch the Trumpers to blow their tops and start punching people.

    • Might not want to fill that diaper up with claims of rigging and fraud too soon.  You've still got two weeks.  
    • Still indecisive ??
