SOME FISH DISHES
Any kind of fish in the market may
be used with little variation for these
recipes. When one can
purchase a thick slice or
fillet of rich fish there is
little waste. A pound
goes a long way. Any
that Is left may be used
in salad, souffles or
creamed and served on
Baked Fillet. Wash the fish and
wipe dry. Melt a tablespoonful of
butter and brush over the fish.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and rub
gently with a tablespoonful of flour.
Put on the rack of a roaster, cover
and bake forty minutes In a rather
hot oven. The flour and butter will
make a nice crust over the fish. Serve
with wedges of lemon and garnish
Green Onions Creamed. Take small
onions, cut Into half-inch lengths,
stems and all, and cook until tender;
serve with a butter sauce or a rich
cream sauce. This dish is especially
good with fish.
Broiled Fillet of Haddock. The
household will be healthier If the
broiler Is used more and the frying
pan less. When one has a stove with
a good broiler there is no reason to
use a frying pan. It is the simplest
thing in the world to broil your break
fast bacon, chops and steak on a
broiler. It must be carefully watched,
of course, but the results are worth
while. Have the brojler hot, grease
the rack lightly and lay on the fillet
of fish not too close to scorch it,
turn and cook on both sides until well
done. As soon as It Is placed on a
hot-platter pour over the fish two
tablespoonfuls of melted butter and
two of lemon Juice. Dust with pep
per and serve with a tartar sauce.
Molded Ramekin of White Fish.
Combine five tablespoonfuls of tapioca
with one cupful of milk, one-half tea
spoonfuls of salt, dash of cayenne,
one-half tablespoonful of minced pars
ley and two and one-fourth cupfuls
of finely flaked fish. Let stand five
minutes then turn into greased cus
tard cups or ramekins and bake in a
moderate oven until well cooked. Un
mold and garnish the top of each with
a sprig of parsley. Serve with caper
Stanton and the hostess.' Two com
forts were tied out during the after
noon. ; A bounteous luncheon was
served at the close of the afternoon.
