medieval recipes for seafood
- Has anyone tried any period recipes for seafood? A few years
ago "when I had time"(WIHT), Jordan and I tried a recipe from Pleyn
Delit consisting of boneless haddock, bread, and as I recall, lots
of butter (wow!). It was pretty good but I would cut down the butter
considerably (for my own sake).
Summer heat and lower seafood prices seem like a nice opportunity to
try to adapt some type of period seafood dish. I'm not a fan of
anything with tenacles (no squid!), I dislike fish bones so I avoid
some types of fish, and I have to admit that I have no desire to try
any dish that has "eel" as an ingredient. Other types of fish and
shellfish I regard as quite yummy, except for clams that haven't
been cleaned (ick!). I've found shark or some other very mild
tasting fish might be a good platform for further experimentation.
Anyone have any fish or seafood recipes they have tried?
