How to Make PEGGI'S PICKLED FISH
1Soak fish in salt brine in fridge for 48 hours. BE SURE FISH IS COMPLETELY COVERED BY SOLUTION & DO NOT PACK TIGHT THROUGHOUT ALL OF THIS RECIPE.
2After 48 hours, drain & rinse fish thoroughly. Fish will appear somewhat slimy at this time. Don't worry, the vinegar in the next step will firm it up.
3Place back in container & soak in white vinegar, in fridge for 24 hours.
4DO THIS STEP ABOUT 4 HOURS BEFORE YOUR 24 HOURS ARE UP!!
In the meantime, prepare the solution of vinegar & sugar by just bringing to a boil.
( May need extra solution)
5Make sure your jars are fairly hot by soaking in hot water. Place spices & onions in jars. Pour hot solution in jars & cool completely.
6After 24 hours, drain & rinse the fish that's in the vinegar.
7Place fish in jars with solution. (DO NOT PACK TIGHT.) Be sure solution covers fish completely. Put lids on & store in fridge. Let set in fridge at least a week before serving.
Serve with crackers or any other type of appetizer.
