Pickled Northern Pike Gene Potts
Take 4 medium northern pike fillets with Y bones
Layer fish with LOTS of sliced onions (½ red and ½ white onions works best) and pour the Pickling brine over the fish and onions. Stir occasionally to mix spices through out the container
Wait 4-5 days before sampling
Y-Bones with be dissolved (taste better if you use pike with Y bones) Enjoy Pickled Pike on crackers with your favorite beverage Finished product with keep for several weeks in fridge. Pike should take like sweet pickled herring- if bitter add sugar. If you have too many fish make more pickling brine-it takes a while to make mixture to come out exact ratio
Many times we bring pike back and throw away after a few months- this is an excellent use of a fish resource.
