Of One loach You Can Eat Half Cooked In Water

This is an excerpt from Le Menagier de Paris
(France, 1393 - Janet Hinson, trans.)
The original source can be found at David Friedman's website

Of one loach you can eat half cooked in water, and the other half may be salted for one day or two days, up to eight days, but in this case it must be soaked to get the salt out, then it can be parboiled and then drained, then fried and eaten with yellow pepper. As for fresh loach left over from dinner, at supper you may have it minced.
