214. Escorfeno in casserole. This fish is not good except in casserole or boiled; and if you want to roast it, take the escorfeno, and after cleaning and washing it, cut it into pieces if it is very thick or large; and take all herbs, and shed them finely, and put everything inside the casserole with a little oil, and let it go to the oven; then cast in raisins, and almonds and chestnuts, and everything should go together into the casserole; and you can put in something sour if you wish.
