Mix the flour with the water and add this to the fillets. Sprinkle parsley over it. Bake at 325 ºF for about 40 minutes, depending on how thick the fillets are. Keep spooning the pan juices over the fish every now and then while it is baking. This dish can be served either hot or cold, and should be garnished with sliced lemons.

It is recommended that you use a stainless steel pan for this. Cut the fish into small chunks. Soak these pieces in a quart of water and a cup of salt water for about 2 days. Drain and rinse the fish in cold water. Next, pour the white vinegar over the fish and then put it in the fridge for 2 more days. Drain away the vinegar. Cook all the other ingredients for about 5 minutes, and leave to cool down. Pour this over the fish, and add the onion and lemon slices on top. Place it in the refrigerator for 5 days and then remove the spices and pack it in jars. This makes 3 pints of pickle.
