194. Dentex in casserole. Take the dentex, and after cleaning and washing it well, make rounds as big as your hand. And then cast in your spices, which are saffron, and pepper, and nutmeg, and a little salt, all well-ground; and cast it upon the fish, and put it in the casserole with all your preparation; and when the said dentex is half-cooked, cast in all herbs and a little orange juice. And if you wish to put in raisins and almonds afterwards, you can do so; however, cast in a little oil because these things always need a little oil.
