Canned fish

Today I am a guest on my friend Tipper's blog, Blind pig and the acorn. I thought I'd repost my recipe on how we can fish. 


It's one of my favorite meals. I open the can, drain off all the liquid, add 2 T. flour, 1 t. baking powder, some grated onion if I remember it, and a beaten egg, mix well. Make small patties and roll them in either flour or cornmeal, my favorite is Andy's seasoning fish mix, and fry in a small amount of oil until crispy. The blacksmith likes his served with a little cocktail sauce he makes using ketchup and horseradish. 



Here is the finished product.
It was easy to do. Pack the chunks of fish tightly into jars. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 tablespoon of oil and seal the jars. Place in pressure cooker, adding 2 quarts of boiling water. Process for 90 minutes at 15 pounds of pressure.
This can be used the same way you would use canned salmon or mackerel.

Did you cook it before you canned it or was it raw packed? And how do you plan to use it? blessings, marlene

Never seen this before! You can do everything! :)
And then how do you cook it later? (I know it has to be delicious.)

My mom used to can fish as well. They where so good. She prepared them the same way. She would make "fish balls" kind of like hush puppies. Yum yum.

Darn, I never did get to try these patties with the spoonbill I canned. Shane ate it all for his lunches before I could. :(
