You're right, there's no specific file in the Florilegium on "pickled  
fish". I guess I need to collect the material in such a file.

Using the search engine on the top page of the Florilegium turns up  
several references, including several SCA feast reviews, which  
hopefully refer back to a specific period recipe, but maybe not.

Check these files:

Yeah, stockfish probably means only dried fish, but I didn't know that  
then. There's a mention of a pickled fish dish in Forme of Cury.

There's at least a pickled salmon recipe in this file.
