Cornish Star - Gazy Pie
What You Need:
  • Herrings or mackerel
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley
  • Butter
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Bacon
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons tarragon vinegar
  • Short crust pastry

  • How To Cook:
    1. Take enough fresh herrings or mackerel to fill a moderate-size dish.

    2. Scale and split them and remove the backbones.

    3. Lay them flat, season the inside of each with salt, pepper and chopped parsley and roll up neatly.

    4. Butter a pie dish and sprinkle in it a thick layer of fine breadcrumbs.

    5. Lay in some of the fish, and then fill the dish with alternate layers of breadcrumbs and fish.

    6. Cover the top with a few slices of fat bacon, and pour over all eggs beaten up with tarragon vinegar (or, if preferred, with ╝ pint cream).

    7. Cover the dish with short crust pastry and arrange the heads of the fish in a hole made in the center of the crust.

    8. Bake in a hot oven (450░F) until the pastry is cooked.

    9. Put a piece of parsley into the mouth of each fish before serving.

        If preferred, leave the heads on the fish, but clean and bone them; put the fish with their heads towards the center of the pie.
