root and a few slices of lemon, lay the fish in, either whole or cut up
in slices; boil in enough water to just cover the fish, and add more
salt if required, add a dozen whole peppers, black or white; season with
ground white pepper. Let the fish boil quickly. In the meantime beat up
the yolks of two eggs, and pound a dozen almonds to a paste, add to the
beaten yolks, together with a tablespoon of cold water. When done remove
the fish to a large platter; but to ascertain whether the fish has
cooked long enough, take hold of the fins, if they come out readily your
fish has cooked enough. Strain the sauce through a sieve, taking out the
slices of lemon and with them garnish the top of the fish; add the
strained sauce to the beaten eggs, stirring constantly as you do so;
then return the sauce to the kettle, and stir until it boils, remove
quickly and pour it over the fish. When it is cold garnish with curly

paper well rubbed with dripping, and bake in a moderate oven for about
twenty minutes or longer, if the fish is large. Remove the skin and

through a sieve, and chop the white. Arrange these in alternate rows
all over the fish, and garnish with a few lemon slices.
