Hi, has anybody ever tried to roll mop whiting fillets, just wondered if it was worth a try as I've got about 4 ltr of pickling vinny that I need to use up.
Whats the pickling time before you can get tucked in to roll mops and would the vinegar dissolve most of the bone in whiting like it does in herring and other fish.
Seem to catch lots of whiting this time of year and onwards and was looking at putting them to some other use, so any feedback I would be greatful.
cheers guys

I am sure you can pickle because they use whitefish for escabeche see below but with a wine vinegar. I am guessing bones don't dissolve as much though given the fact that they use fillets!

I also remember a dish years ago in South Africa where white fish was fried and then had a pickling solution poured over it and was served cold. Maybe one of our SA brethren can help on that one!

Went out last Wednesday and caught a shed load of whiting as usual, so I kept back half a doz good sized ones then cut them into fillets soaked the fillets overnight in white spiced vinegar, the following morning removed them from the vinegar, the fillets had a cooked look about them so I put them in a kilner jar along with a thinly sliced onion a few peper corns level tea spoon of salt and about three tea spoons of sugar and a good splash of olive oil then filled the jar with half spring water and half white wine vinegar, job done.:thumbs:

Well the wifey has managed to chomp her way through about a third of the mops and so far has not suffered any ill effects:kissing:
That's the same sort of experimentation I do at home when the mother-in-law comes to visit! Unfortunately the desired results have not been forthcoming for me!:shutup:

Congratulations on the success of the recipe though!:victory:
