Pickled Northern

Recommended Posts

We've recently started pickling northern this winter and its turned out great, my question is why doesn't anyone talk about pickled fish in the summer? Is there something with the meat in the summer or something? Just curious becouse I wana pickle fish all year!!lol

Which recipe are you using ? A lot of people do not keep small pike in the summer as they don't want to deal with slime etc in coolers. In winter its not an issue.

There are a lot of "old school" fisherman out there. Its the way they always did it, to them its the only way. Winter is pike pickling, spring is crappie harvest, summer mornings and evenings are spent walleye fishing, and fall is hunting season. You would be surprised how true this is.

WalleyeBIZ,

There is no reason you would not be able to Pickle Northern year round. We make a new batch of Pickled Northern when ever we are getting low. It is always a good idea to freeze the chunks of northern to take care of any possible parasites. My recipe calls for three pounds of Northern chunks so I always keep a few extra pounds food sealed, weighed, dated and ready to go.

It tastes just as great in the spring, summer or fall as it does in the winter. The more your friends find out about your Pickled Northern the more it will be in demand!!

you can pickle northerns any time. I find myself cooking and smoking food more in the Winter due to there less things to do this time of year. Kind of get stuck in the house when it's -20.

I just finished 23 quarts of northerns. I gathered fish from a few friends that would never make it themselves, but love to eat it. Something to do on a cold day when windchill is -53.

Cold water slimers have much firmer meat and yield a better product than summer snot rockets. That said, pickled pike is one of my all time favorites!

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
