No 50 Whiting alla Genovese

(Sauces) - (The Cook's Decameron: A Study In Taste For Italian Dishes)

Ingredients: Whiting, butter, pepper, salt, bay leaf claret,
parsley, onions, garlic capers, vinegar, Espagnole sauce,
mushrooms, anchovies.
Put one or two whiting into a stewpan with two ounces of butter,
salt, pepper, two bay leaves, and a glass of claret or Burgundy;
cook on a hot fire and turn the fish when necessary. Have ready
beforehand a remoulade sauce made in the following manner: Put in
a saucepan 1 1/2 ounces of butter, half a teaspoonful of chopped
parsley, half an onion, a clove of garlic (with one cut), four
capers, one anchovy, all chopped up except the garlic. Then add
three tablespoonsful of vinegar and reduce the sauce. Add two
glasses of Espagnole sauce (No. 1) and a little good stock; boil it
all up (take out the garlic and bay leaves) and pass through a
sieve, then pour it over the whiting. Boil it all again for a few
minutes, and before serving garnish with a few button mushrooms
cooked separately. The remoulade sauce will be much better if made
some hours beforehand.
