Fish Day: secrets of marinovka mackerel, salmon and trout

Рыбный день: секреты мариновки скумбрии, семги и форели

If you are going to salt or marinate fish at home, you will probably find some simple tips.

So, let's start with salmon. Having bought the unbetted fish, we wash it under cold water and longitudinally cut the carcass from the gills to the very tail. Inside, remove carefully, trying not to damage the film (wash the salmon from the inside should not be, as this will worsen its palatability in salting). Then we cut off the head of the fish, with the help of the knife we ​​separate a part of the skin from the meat and pull it towards the tail. To speed up the removal of the skin, you can cut it along the vertebral bone. Now we separate the fingers of meat, moving along the ridge, and holding the carcass with one hand, remove the fillets, and remove the salmon left on the spine and ribs with a knife.

There are many ways of salting red fish. Here is one of the most popular - mix large salt and sugar in proportion of two parts of salt to one part of sugar (1 kg of salmon usually take a couple tablespoons of salt and one tablespoon of sugar). It remains only to cut the fish fillets into parts, put them in ceramic or enameled form, pour the mixture, cover the container with foil and put it in the refrigerator for the night.

This way of salting is suitable for sea trout. If you bought frozen fish, let it thaw and separate the spine and costal bones. Then sprinkle the trout mixture and stand for a couple of days in a cold place.

For those who like pickled mackerel, we advise you to take gutted carcasses of fish, cut them into fillets, not removing the skin, and then cut each piece obliquely into thin slices. After this, put the mackerel in the form, alternating layers of fish and chopped dill. Now you need to prepare marinade from salt and sugar in equal parts, white pepper, vegetable oil and vinegar, pour the fish and put the form in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
