There has been a few gents that have asked to post up this fish recipe, so here it is. Thought maybe some spring pike anglers may want to give it a shot, it sure is killer recipe.

The Silver Satin pickling fish recipe.

Brine: ½ cup sale (Not iodized) to 1 quart water. Place fillets of fish in crock with brine for 24hrs. Cut fillets into squares approximately one inch by one inch. Cover completely. Drain brine after 24 hours. Cover with white vinegar for 12 hours. Drain off vinegar and throw away. Pack fish in jars and add raw onion slices alternating layers. Add enough pickling solution to cover fish and then cover the jars

Pickling Solution: 4 cups white vinegar, 3 cups sugar, 1 cup silver satin wine or yellowtail, 2 raw onions, sliced fine, ¼ cup pickling spice

Method: Dissolve sugar in white vinegar. Heat, then cool. (Do not boil) Add silver satin, onion s and pickling spice. Bring to a boil then cool.

Just a lil' Slap n Tickle, n Tickle n Slap....

Sorry, obviously thats "Salt" not "Sale".  Canning/Pickling salt in the green box to be exact.

 I've never been much of a fan for pickled fish so I'll share my recipe for Canned Fish.

I keep my snot-rockets from ice fishing and fillet them and take off the rib cage but don't bother with the Y bones as they melt in this recipe.

Cut fillets  into chunks small enough to stuff into a pint jar. (don't overstuff)
1 Tbsp of Tomato Sauce
1 Tbsp of Vegetable oil
1 Pinch of salt
1 drop of liquid smoke (if you want a slight smoky flavor)

Pressure cook the covered pints for 90 minutes @ 10lbs of pressure.  
(I make 13 pints at a time)
Afterwards the fish looks kinda nasty while it's in the jar but just strain off the liquid and make your favorite recipe substituting the canned fish for any Tuna dish or sandwich spread.  It's FABULOUSLY GOOD !!!

Made a batch two nights ago, one fish, 3.5 quarts. Damned northern took a 16" walleye, dived with it, hit it again the second time up, third time was trailing it but could not net him. When I went back through I caught him. He's now as pickled as I was on the 4th!

Thunderbird, it's the American Classic. Google hobo wines, you may get a good laugh. I've got an old recipe card made by Thunderbird for pickled fish. There's another just like Thunderbird that Big J uses, can't remember the name, if you come down to Mobridge you can find them both.

Big J should own and run a smokehouse/meat locker.  If he made his stuff, they would come.

I add a few pickled chili peppers to mine to kick it up a bit.  I made this once a bunch of times and has yet to suck.  I better get a batch going myself for those long nights in my death shed after antelope hunting.

Oh ya as for the fish I've tried everything and it all works even did some that was freezer burned and you couldn't tell its a great way to get those belly bones out of gills that big j leave in them.

I've wrecked a batch by leaving it in the straight vinegar for 24 hours. Way too much. I like to break the pieces apart after about 4 hours, otherwise they can bind together and not 'cook' completely through. Follow the directions and you'll have a perfect batch every time. I add peppers too. Just tried one from the batch on Tuesday, it is already excellent and only been in the pickling solution for 3 days.

Don't cook them with the pickling part, put em in when you put the fish in, raw.

Thought you werent supposed to do that with peppers. Something about botulism.

I think that's a canning issue (stored at room temperature for months/years. These are pickled and should remain refrigerated the entire time - different deal vs canning.

When I did last time, I added the peppers at the same time I added the onions so they did cook. But I do "can" them the way grandma taught me because I have limited fridge space but lots of pantry space. Maybe the canning process would cook them enough to not worry about the botulism but still leave some heat.

Holy shit, what did you end up with after canning them? I tried it and got some little black, turd looking things. I still wonder if you skip the vinegar cooking part and go right to canning how they would turn out. I also quit cooking the onions, put them in raw when you put the fish in the jar. Somewhere further back I mentioned follow the directions, was talking about the 'cooking' in vinegar, the rest don't need to be followed. One other thing, J's got the picture there, red onions taste better but they can put a little red tint to things. No big deal.
