Method

Cut your Cod into Slices an Inch thick, lay them in the Bottom of a large Stew-pan, season them with Nutmeg, beaten Pepper and Salt, a Bundle of Sweet Herbs, and an Onion, Half a Pint of White Wine, a quarter of a Pint of Water. Cover it close, and let it simmer softly for five or six Minutes, then squeeze in the Juice of a Lemon; put in a few Oysters and the Liquor strained, a Piece of Butter, as big as an Egg rolled in Flour, a Blade or two of Mace; cover it close, and let it stew softly, shaking the Pan often. When it is enough, take out the Sweet Herbs and Onion, and dish it up, pour the Sauce over it, and Garnish with Lemon.
