Salmon pickled South African style

Recommended Posts

Didn't know this section existed until Mrs Swordfish put me onto it.  Thanks for that. 

I know very few Aussies eat salmon, but it's underrated. Here's just one recipe I've tried on them with amazing results. 

Instead of doing the fish in the oven, I dust it in flour and coat in beaten egg then shallow fry in a pan. 

You can also ad things like Chillies or pickling Spices to the pickle mix according to your tastes. 

As long as all the fish is covered in pickling sauce it lasts for weeks in the fridge and goes well with a nice heavy wholewheat bread. The longer you let it pickle the better it gets. Easy lunch to take to work on a busy morning. Just grab some from the fridge and Bob's your uncle. 

In Cape Town, South Africa the Cape Malay community make this dish year round but especially around Easter and Jewie is one of their favourite fish to use for it.
