Roasted pike. Peel off the pike's scales. Skin it, slice the meat on the sides and remove the bones; cut the meat, add some parsley leaves and some tree oil, then some sugar, black pepper and small grapes; stuff it, then put back its skin, add some salt to the stuffing. Then roast it on a grill, make some sauce if you'd like, and when serving it, cut the thread from the stitching on the neck.
