STOCKFISH must be cut into square pieces like a chequerboard, then soak for only one night, then take it out of the water, and put it to dry on a cloth; then put your oil on to boil, then fry your pieces of fish in a little oil, and eat with mustard or garlic sauce. Stockfish is made, apparently, from cod.
