  • Cook in a slow oven 290°F / 145°C (gas 1) for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, basting the fish often with more cider and more knobs of butter.

Comments:

The long, slow cooking of this dish results in the dissolution of the tiresome small bones, which abound in shad. The recipe belongs to the region of the Seine, although nowadays no shad spawn in the Seine itself. It is necessary to choose a shad with plenty of roe or milt, which makes this a dish for the spring or early summer.
