Salmon, Pickled I (P, TNT)
Source: my dad's wife, Doreen
Serves: 10, as an appetizer

1 baby salmon, cut into steaks
2-3 carrots
2-3 celery ribs
1 onion
salt and pepper
1 handful pickling spices tied in a cheesecloth

1 cup reserved cooking liquid
1 cup vinegar 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 bottle ketchup
pickling spices (a bit)
1 onion, (or more) thinly sliced

Cook salmon in water to cover with the vegetables and spices about 10-15 minutes. Remove salmon, reserve 1 cup cooking liquid. Break into large pieces.

Mix marinade ingredients. Layer salmon and onions in a large container (plastic or glass) and let marinate in fridge for a day before serving.

Poster's Notes:
This recipe comes from my dad's wife, Doreen, who is a great cook. She usually makes this salmon for holidays. We serve this as an appetizer before a meal instead of gefilte fish. It should serve about 10 depending on the size of the fish. Doreen of course always doubles the recipe because we can't eat just one piece!
