    To flavor the fish or ?? You can add jalapenos, garlic cloves, tomato sauce, Tabasco, onions... just about anything I suppose. Might add a few drops of liquid smoke to a couple cans and see if it works. Might give you that smoke taste.

    Tsp of oil, pinch of salt, and 2 Tbl of V-8.
    Been canning halibut with this mix and its great, like tuna.
    Been trying garlic salt, srirachi and red hot too with good results.

    A couple drops of liquid smoke and you'll never be able to tell it wasn't smoked to start with.

    I also like a couple of jalapeņo rings in there.

    Plain isn't so bad either, just a pinch of salt will do.

    We usually put either a whole (sliced) jalapeno or a half habanero along with a tsp of seasoned salt.

    We use one tablespoon of Catalina French Dressing per pint canning jar. You can double this if you want. My mom used this recipe when canning landlocked Kokanee in Idaho when I was a kid. The dressing has the salt content you need and it adds a little color and flavor to the fish. Very, very good!

    3/4 teaspoon of Salt is all you need for fish caught at Chitna.

    When you Slime'em and Scale'em, and DON'T Skin'em, Cut the pieces in strips, cut to length, and make sure there is a belly piece or two in each jar. Cuz that's where the fat comes from.
