fish tart

Fish Tart. Take the fish and cut it into large pieces and cook it with salt, wine and something tart -do this with any fish you wish to do in pastry; bonito, bleak, mackerel, bass and mullet, to be put on a spit [or] set on grills, to be served when cooked; then get pepper, saffron, vinegar, finely chopped onion, mixed together, and put that on top. I do not propose to deal at length with this coarse material.
