Pike To Boil A-la-francaise
Wash well, clean, and scale a large pike, and cut it into three pieces;
boil an equal quantity of white wine and water with lemon-peel, and when
the liquor boils put your pike in, with a handful of salt. When done,
lay it on sippets, and stick it with bits of fried bread. Sauce--melted
butter, with slices of lemon in it, the yolks of three eggs, and some
grated nutmeg. Pour your sauce over the pike, and serve it up.
