  • Take the water in which the fish was boiled and mix it with the beaten eggs and the juice of the lemons.
  • Add finely cut parsley, and with one-half of this mixture moisten the fried bread in the pan.
  • Over this lay the boiled fish, and pour it over the rest of the mixture.
  • Now it is ready to simmer on a very slow fire until well done.
