Cold pike With Walleye Sauce

Cold pike with walleye sauce. Clean it and add salt like I told you. Make the sauce with clean water, put some onions into it and a slice of meat from the fish; once the onion and the meat are cooked, wash the pike from the salt and pass through a strainer the water. Once cooked, put the meat into a plate, mix and break the sauce, pour some vinegar onto it to make it white. If doing it in the summer, put the meat onto ice and pass through a strainer the sauce onto it, but have a lot of sauce, for that is how the dish looks good. If you have a beluga bladder, put a bit into it, and also its own bladder. When serving it, slice some onion on top of it.
