Default Fish Pickle

These are wonderful recipes from "Roman Cookery" by John Edwards. They come from cookbooks written by th ancient roman cooks Apicius (there were more than one by that name). I have used this pickle as a spread on crackers and nice breads as well as a seasoning for other dishes. Enjoy!

Mild Fish-pickle

3 ounces, drained and washed, canned tuna or salmon, or unsalted sardines or unsalted anchovies [or cooked fish]
2 tsp white wine
1 Tbs vinegar
1/2 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp celery seed (or lovage)
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp honey
pinch of basil
1/4 tsp thyme
1 mint leaf, finely chopped

In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine all ingredients. This fish-pickle may be stored in the refrigerator in a glass jar for up to 2 weeks, and should then be replaced.


Hot Fish-pickle

3 ounces of fish as described above
1 Tbs white wine
1 Tbs vinegar
1 Tbs olive oil
1 small clove of garlic, crushed
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tsp parsley [minced]
1/4 tsp rosemary, ground
1/4 tsp sage
1 mint leaf, finely chopped
pinch of basil

mix and store as above

We still make these pickles, they are called "Lakerda" and lasts up to 3 months. you can make it with any fish just make sure you drain all blood and clean the bones.

Ceviche would also count as a fish-pickle. There are lots of variations on that:
