Welcome to the Captain's Galley
Here we will have lots of fun in the cooking and
then the eating and that I enjoy the best.
A fish that lends itself well to
boiling is fresh cod. In fact, codfish prepared according to this method
and served with a sauce makes a very appetizing dish.
Scale, clean, and skin a fresh cod and wrap it in a single layer of gauze
Place it in a kettle or a pan of freshly boiling water to which has been
added 1 teaspoonful of salt to each quart of water.
Boil until the fish may be easily pierced with a fork, take from the
water, and remove the gauze or cheesecloth carefully so as to keep the
fish intact. Serve with sauce and slices of lemon.
