Fish Tartare

All Recipes For:

Salmon    Tuna    Mackerel    Cod    Halibut    Perch    Flounder    Smelts    Rock Fish    Shad

Turbot    Trout    Herring    Eel    Haddock    Shad Roe    Bluefish    Finnan Haddie    Salt Fish

Clean the smelts by drawing them between the finger and thumb, beginning at the tail. This will press out the insides at the opening at the gills. Wash them, and drain in the colander; salt well, and dip in beaten egg and bread or cracker crumbs (one egg and one cupful of crumbs to twelve smelts, unless these are very large).

Dip first in the egg, and then roll in the crumbs. Fry in boiling fat deep enough to float them. They should be a handsome brown in two minutes and a half. Take them up, and place on a sheet of brown paper for a few moments, to drain; then place on a hot dish. Garnish with parsley and a few slices of lemon, and serve with sauce in a separate dish; or, they may be served without the sauce.

Cut the eels into pieces about four inches long. Cover them with boiling water, in which let them stand five minutes, and then drain them. Now dip in beaten egg, which has been well salted and peppered, then in bread or cracker crumbs. Fry in boiling fat for five minutes. Have Tartare sauce spread in the centre of a cold dish. Place the fried eels in a circle on this,
garnish with parsley, and serve.
