Title: PICKLED PIKE
by petrgill
Type: Appetizer
Servings:
Difficulty: Intermediate
Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Ingredients: 6 cups distilled water (very important to avoid a mineral taste)
2 cups pickling salt

4 cups white vinegar ( at least 5% acid)
1 cup cider vinegar ( at least 5% acid)
2 cups sugar
4 tsp pickling spice

Directions: Wash fillets in cold water

Brine;
6 cups distilled water (very important to avoid a mineral taste)
2 cups pickling salt

Soak fish in brine 24 hours or so
Remove fish and rinse thoroughly in cold water...discard brine

Layer fish / Vidalia onion, sliced about 1/8" in a clean glass jar. (I save my pickle jars) Pack fairly well.

Heat;
4 cups white vinegar ( at least 5% acid)
1 cup cider vinegar ( at least 5% acid)
2 cups sugar
4 tsp pickling spice

Bring to a slow boil then cool to room temp.

Pour over fish/onions to completely cover contents.

With a long utensil (I use a chopstick) poke down into the packed jar to remove any air bubbles and refill with remaining pickling solution.

Cover tightly and refrigerate for a good week before eating. Keep refrigerated!

Other Notes: pickle thoroughly frozen / thawed fish. Parasitic worms are a real possibility.
