A Pie of Sea or River Fish. Knead dough according to the recipe for cheese pie; and take fish, clean it inside and out, wash it, and drain the water. Take onion juice and cilantro juice and mix in spices, pepper and myrobalan [? hîlaj for ihlîlaj?]; beat it in a dish in which has been put a spoonful of murri, another of oil, and four eggs. Put the fish in this dish, cover it with its crust and send it into the oven. He who wishes to make this without spices, makes a pie shell as large as the fish and places the fish in it, throws in plenty of pepper, after greasing it with oil, covers it, and sends it to the oven, God willing.
