Three pounds of halibut, six eggs, one quarter pound butter, one quart sweet milk, two tablespoonfuls of corn-starch, one tablespoonful of flour. Skin and bone the fish and run through a meat-chopper. Add flour and corn-starch, mixing well. Add butter, rubbing all to a cream; next the eggs, one at a time, thoroughly beating after each one. Add milk gradually, one quarter teaspoonful pepper and one and one half teaspoonfuls of salt. Beat until it thickens. Grease and line a deep baking-pan with browned bread-crumbs. Fill with the fish mixture and sprinkle crumbs on top. Bake for an hour and a half in a moderate oven; cover at first, then remove the cover and let it brown well.
Put two pounds of halibut into a saucepan and cover it with fresh water. Add a sliced onion, half a carrot sliced, two tablespoonfuls of vinegar, a small bunch of parsley, a pinch of powdered sweet herbs, and two tablespoonfuls of salt. Simmer until done, drain, and serve with melted butter to which a little anchovy paste has been added.
Rub the fish with salt, sprinkle with lemon-juice, and keep in a cool place for an hour. Cover with cold water, bring quickly to the boil, and simmer until done. Serve with Egg Sauce.
Soak the steaks in salted water for an hour, drain, and sprinkle with oil and lemon-juice. Put into a covered baking-pan, sprinkle with chopped onion and a tablespoonful of melted butter, and add a cupful of boiling water. Cover and cook until nearly done, then uncover, sprinkle with crumbs, dot with butter, and bake brown. Serve with Tartar Sauce.
Cover the steaks with court bouillon or hot water, and add a slice each of carrot, onion, and celery, a bay-leaf, four cloves, six peppercorns, and the juice of half a lemon. Simmer until done, drain and serve with any preferred sauce.
Prepare Boiled Halibut according to directions previously given, and serve with Bechamel Sauce, seasoning with salt, pepper, and grated nutmeg. Add four tablespoonfuls of butter and a pinch of sugar, and strain over the fish.
Boil the halibut in salted and acidulated water. For the sauce boil a cupful of chopped parsley for five minutes in a cupful of water. Strain the water through a sieve, and thicken with a tablespoonful of butter blended with a tablespoonful of flour. Take from the fire, season with salt, pepper, and grated nutmeg, add the yolks of two eggs well beaten, a little minced parsley, two tablespoonfuls of butter, and a few drops of lemon-juice or vinegar. Strain over the fish and serve.
Skin the halibut and cut into large cubes. Dip into melted butter, seasoned with salt, pepper, and onion-juice, then into beaten egg, then into crumbs. Put into a buttered baking-pan, spread with egg and butter, and cook in a hot oven for twelve minutes. Serve with Hollandaise Sauce.
