Introduction: Preserved Salmon

Picture of Preserved Salmon

Squirrels are storing food for winter!That's something our grandmothers did too. It was the only possibility to get through cold winters and to be able to use the vegetables and meats, that were not sold and in season during the cold time of year.

Even I am still storing food, I cook my own Jam, Pesto, preserved Vegetables and Chilies, Sauces etc. And you know what? There are no food coloring or preservatives in them!And now I also preserved some fish, fresh wild salmon. It tastes great, lemony, and is perfect to crispy fresh bread!

Step 1: Prepare..

I want to try this recipe ! Perhaps to try also an other fish ?

Of course, try it. But use a fish that doesn't fall apart easily.
