Ingredients

  • 3 lbs. fish, cut in slices and sprinkled with salt
  • ¼ teaspoon whole pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion, cut fine
  • 1 qt. water
  • 1 tablespoon celery, cut fine
  • 1 tablespoon carrot, cut fine

Method

Clean fish and let stand in salt several hours. Let the water, pepper and vegetables boil until the water is well flavored. Add the fish, a few slices at a time, and let simmer until the flesh is firm and leaves the bones, no matter how long the time. Place on platter. Strain and reserve the fish stock, if wanted.
