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

191. Sturgeon or pike in casserole. Clean the sturgeon very well and cut it into rounds as big as a hand; and then take the spices which are pepper, ginger, and a little saffron; and take all herbs, parsley, and marjoram, and mint and a little dry coriander, and let all this be well-mixed. And then put the sturgeon in the casserole with the said spices, and salt, and oil, and the herbs, and let them go to the fire over coals; however, the casserole should be well covered; or if not, let it go to the oven, and cast in oil.
