To make a Fish-Pye

Aus: Mrs. Eales Compleat Confectioner (1718-1742), Teil 2, S. 038


Take Soles or Flounders, gut and wash them; then scald them in Water to get off the black Skin; cut them in Escallops or indented, that they may lie in the Pye as if they were whole. Keep your Patty-pan ready, with Puff Paste in the Bottom, and a Layer of Butter on it; then season your Fish with a little Pepper, Salt, Cloves, Mace, and Nutmeg, and lay them in your Pattipan, joining the Pieces together; then put in forc’d Meat Balls made with Fish, Lemon sliced with the rind on, whole oysters, whole Yolks of Eggs, and pickled Barberries; then lid your Pye and bake it. When it is drawn make a Caudle of Oyster Liquor and White-wine, thicken’d with Yolks of Eggs, and a little Butter.
