Salmon Fish Pickle

At home, we are a huge fan of pickles, but this is a special one, this one just gets over in a flash.
It was just a usual visit to my friend Smita chechi's home, and i  was very  lucky to taste  her special Salmon pickle, and from then on i was hooked on to this.  I've really lost the number of times i've made it :)
