Introduction
This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from Das Kuchbuch der Sabina Welserin (Germany, 16th century - V. Armstrong, trans.), entitled "64 To make a fish pastry from trout". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]


The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

64 To make a fish pastry from trout, carp, Selbingen or bream. Open the fish and pull out the entrails and cut diagonal slashes in it, let the fish remain otherwise whole. Take pepper and ginger, mix them together well and a little cloves, and salt the fish well inside and out. Take butter or another fat and put it on the inside and outside of the fish. Make the pastry as for any fish and let it bake.

While interpreting this recipe, I also considered the following recipes that appear to be related:

183. Trout in crust or roasted or boiled. The trout must be scaled, and if you wish to make it in crust, cast in pepper and a little ginger. And if you wish to cook it in some other manner, such as roasted or boiled, cause water to boil in a casserole, and cast in the trout. And when it is almost half cooked, cast in a little salt so that it should have good flavor. And then cast a half glass of vinegar into the casserole, because the vinegar will make it firm, so that it shouldn't break; and eat it with pepper, and with a little broth of the pot or of the casserole itself.

And if they want to eat it roasted, it must be eaten with orange juice and water and salt and a little oil, and all the good herbs; and prepare the plate of the roast trout. And cast this juice on top of everything. And know that the best morsel of it is the snout. [Libre del Coch]
