To Pot Salmon

Method

Take a Piece of fresh Salmon, scale it, and wipe it clean (let your Piece, or Pieces, be as big as will lye cleverly in your Pot) season it with Jamaica Pepper, black Pepper, Mace and Cloves beat fine, mixed with Salt, a little Salprunella beat fine, and rub the Bone with; season with a little of the Spice, pour clarified Butter over it, and bake it well; then take it out carefully, and lay it to drain; when cold, season it well, lay it in your Pot close, and cover it with clarified Butter as above.

Thus you may do Carp, Tench, Trout, and several Sorts of Fish.
