Thanks Nan for posting this recipe! I had very good results & my Mum made it too, so we compared notes on it's authenticity!! It was delicious - not quite as I remembered it, but dishes like this don't always travel well, mainly as I could not get hold of yellowtail fish fillets. I used a local meaty type of fish instead called Julienne, which is a Halibut type fish. I am thrilled to have such a good recipe for pickled fish however, and I have saved it in my Fish & Seafood cookbook. In the future I will change it very slightly by adding slightly less vinegar & slightly more sugar; I remember it as being a bit more on the sweet side than the sour side! Many thanks for posting it and sending me the link! Great!

This was very good ! I didn't know that that the fish can be firmed up just by sprinkling it with salt and let it sit for 20 -25 min. Thanks for the new found knowledge and a great recipe.

The fish I used was a yellow fin tuna. I made it last night and we will be having it later as a late afternoon snack. It is very good. And we will have it with a small salad. I love that it will keep for a week. Very easy recipe to follow. Thanks!
