172 Pike in May butter. Take a pike, let it come to a boil in salted wine with water, and when it is half done, then draw the skin off of it and put the flesh in a pan and put a large amount of fresh butter, good wine, ginger and cinnamon thereon. Do not oversalt it and let it cook together. Do not make too much sauce.
