Went out and got a bag of herring last week so I could make up a pickle. Used to eat a heap of this as a kid when the family would goto Lancelin in the school holidays. This recipe is a cross between what my old man taught me and little johnnys crayfish pickle.

1 ½ cups malt vinegar

1 ½ cups ssb white wine

½ cup french salad dressing

½ cup water

1 red chilli

1 clove garlic

1 green capsicum

1 finely chopped onion

Salt and pepper

1 dozen herring fillets cut in half

Mix all ingredients together and adjust to taste, put herring into mixture and leave in fridge for 24hrs, if you can.

If you do anything

50/50 in vin and water 6 months easy. But as people pointed out in other posts. Keeps cooking it . And can stuff it. Occy brilliant up to month. Cray 1 week . Fish never done. But nothing lasts to long, if it's good it's gone within days . Got some herring today . Going to have a crack.

Another good one to try

With cray tails. 4 tails per Chinese container. Cover with water sprinkle salt over them and freeze. Last for year easy. No freezer burn , neat and easy storage . Taste fresh as day your caught them. Put frozen block in pot. When defrosted. Boil them in water they where stored in. You will be very suprised in texture and quality.
