203. Moray eel in crust. If the moray eel should be alive, take care that it does not bite you because its bite is poisonous; and it being alive, flog it well , because the fish bones all descend to the tail; and then scald it just like the conger eel, neither more nor less; and then wash it well with cold water and cut it into pieces; and take your spices: ginger, a little galingale, and salt, and all this should be well-ground and cast upon the cut-up moray; and make the empanadas; and cast a little oil inside and cover them, and let them go to cook in the oven. And being cooked, cast on a little orange juice.
