Fish Pie Recipe

Any remains of cold fish, such as cod or haddock, 2 dozen oysters, pepper and salt to taste, bread crumbs, sufficient for the amount of fish; tea-spoonful of grated nutmeg, 1 tea-spoonful of finely chopped parsley.

Clear the fish from the bones, and put a layer of it in a pie dish, and sprinkle with pepper and salt; then a layer of bread crumbs, oysters, nutmeg and chopped parsley. Repeat this till the dish is quite full. You can form a covering either of bread crumbs, which should be browned, or puff-paste, which should be cut off into long strips, and laid in crossbars over the fish, with a line of the paste first laid round the edge. Before putting on the top, pour in some made melted butter, or a bit of thin white sauce, and the oyster-liquor, and bake. Time: If of cooked fish, ¼ hour; if made of fresh fish and puff paste, ¾ hour.
