Breakfast, Luncheon and Tea
By Marion Harland [Mary Virginia Terhune] (1875)



    • A piece of fish from the middle of the back, weighing four, five or six pounds.

    • A cupful of bread-crumbs, peppered and salted.

    • 2 table-spoonfuls boiled salt pork, finely chopped.

    • A table-spoonful chopped parsley, sweet marjoram and thyme, with a mere suspicion of minced onion.

    • 1 teaspoonful anchovy sauce, or Harvey's, if you prefer it. 1/2 cupful drawn butter.

    • Juice of half a lemon.

    • 1 beaten egg.


Lay the fish in very cold salt-and-water for two hours; wipe dry; make deep gashes in both sides at right angles with the back-bone and rub into these, as well as coat it all over with a force-meat made of the crumbs, pork, herbs, onion and seasoning, bound with raw egg.

Lay in the baking-pan and pour over it the drawn butter (which should be quite thin), seasoned with the anchovy sauce, lemon-juice, pepper and a pinch of parsley.

Bake in a moderate oven nearly an hour,--quite as long if the piece be large, basting frequently lest it should brown too fast.

Add a little butter-and-water when the sauce thickens too much. When the fish is done, remove to a hot dish, and strain the gravy over it.

A few capers or chopped green pickles are a pleasant addition to the gravy.
