Pickled Salmon

I just made pickled salmon following one of the many recipes online. All of the recipes are virtually identical - salmon, onions, vinegar, water, sugar, pickling spices, salt, bay leaves. But they vary widely regarding how long the salmon will keep in the fridge, from 2 weeks to 2 months. This is my first time and am hoping others more experienced can offer some advice. Thanks!

  1. It will keep for a very long time(it is preserved), but beyond a few weeks I find that the texture starts to suffer and the flavor mutes a bit. Still edible and good but not at its best.
