(Fish) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

Prepare trout, pickerel or pike in the following manner: After the fish
has been scaled and thoroughly cleaned, remove all the meat that adheres
to the skin, being careful not to injure the skin; take out all the meat
from head to tail, cut open along the backbone, removing it also; but do
not disfigure the head and tail; chop the meat in a chopping bowl, then
heat about a quarter of a pound of butter in a spider, add two
tablespoons chopped parsley, and some soaked white bread; remove from
the fire and add an onion grated, salt, pepper, pounded almonds, the
yolks of two eggs, also a very little nutmeg grated. Mix all thoroughly
and fill the skin until it looks natural. Boil in salt water, containing
a piece of butter, celery root, parsley and an onion; when done remove
from the fire and lay on a platter. The fish should be cooked for one
and one-quarter hours, or until done. Thicken the sauce with yolks of
two eggs, adding a few slices of lemon.
This fish may be baked but must be rolled in flour and dotted with bits
of butter.
