I found this in the Koekerye, an unpublished 1570 print I'm currently working on editing. Not english (North German, in fact), but it goes back to a South German recipe tradition and it does seem to be what you are looking for.

Keeping fish so that they stay good for long

Put them in an earthen pot, pour good vinegar over them and strew parsley over it. Close the pot tightly and place it in a cold cellar. When you take out fish and vinegar, always fill it up with fresh vinegar and close it tightly again. That way they stay fresh and good for long.
