To Boil Whitings

French Receipt


Having scraped, cleansed, and wiped them, lay them on a fish plate, and put them into water at the point of boiling; throw in a handful or salt, two bay leaves, and plenty of parsley well washed and tied together; let toe fish just simmer from five to ten minutes, and watch them closely that they may not be over-done. Serve parsley and butter with them, and use in making it the liquor in which the whitings have been boiled.

Just simmered from 5 to 10 minutes.
