carp With Clean Black pepper

This is an excerpt from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook

Carp with clean black pepper, in clean water. Wash it, slice it and add salt like I told you. Boil some clean water, and once boiling, slice some onions and parsley roots into it, if it has roes put them into the water as well, and if it's old, slice its nose, and once it's time to cook, add some black pepper, ginger and some oil, boil it so its water will shrink, but put more ginger into it than black pepper, and if you have no tree oil or flax oil, then you can cook it in butter as well.
