Lenten Fare

A Salad Of Fish

Required: half a pound of any kind of cold, cooked fish.
Three hard-boiled eggs
One or two lettuces
Three filleted anchovies
Tartare Sauce
(Sufficient for four).

“Carefully remove all skin and bone from the fish, and break it into large flakes. Sprinkle them with a little oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Wash the lettuce, and tear it into pieces. Cut the eggs in sippets. Arrange the fish, with the fillets of anchovy cut into small pieces, in the center of a dish. Coat the lettuce leaves with tartare sauce, and arrange them as a border round, garnishing the dish with the pieces of hard-boiled egg.” Every Woman’s Encyclopedia, 1912.

lovely salad, although if I have to wait for that cat to catch the fish...I'll just use tuna! Love those old recipes, but I'm usually too timid to try them.
