This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from Libre del Coch (Spain, 1520 - Robin Carroll-Mann, trans.), entitled "184. Barbel in crust". [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:

184. Barbel in crust. Take spices which should be pepper, ginger, and salt, all well-ground, and make the empanadas. And put the barbel in them, well-cleaned and washed, with the said spices, and carry them to the oven. And if you wish to cast in a little orange juice or rosewater, it will not lose anything; and before the empanada goes to the oven, cast in a little oil.
