Make the brine by adding all ingredients in a pot and simmer for 30 minutes then cool. Cut the fish in 1" pieces and thinly slice the red onion. Layer fish, onions and dill in a sterilized quart sealer. Cover with the brine and seal. Should keep in the refrigerator for about 3 months.

Personal Notes:
There was a time on Mud Lake when Dad mostly caught "hammer-handle" northerns, probably in the 1-2 pound category. So as not to "waste" these little, bony fish he experimented in making his own version of pickled herring. Turned out pretty good. Christer would likely recommend that these be downed with ice cold Aqua Vit. Skjol!
