Method

Take about two pounds of the middle part of cod or similar fish, clean it carefully, remove the bones and stuff it with the following mixture: Two or three onions and a handful of parsley finely chopped, two rashers of bacon fried and chopped, salt and pepper; mix all this well with two raw eggs and add a teaspoonful of breadcrumbs. Wrap the fish in thin rashers of bacon, put it in a baking dish with a few pieces of butter and cook in a moderate oven. When the fish is nearly cooked remove the wrappers of bacon, baste well, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and finish in a quicker oven, so that the fish is well browned.
