Stewed Herring

Clean the fish and cut off the heads. Pack in layers in an earthen pot, and sprinkle salt and pepper over each layer. Chop together carrots and onions, enough to cover the fish, and fry in butter with parsley, a few peppercorns, and a minced clove of garlic. Pour over the vegetables enough white wine to cover the fish, and bring to the boil. Simmer for half an hour, then strain over the fish and cook over a slow fire until done.

Cut off the heads and tails and divide each herring lengthwise into two fillets. Put a small amount of butter into a frying-pan and add enough flour to absorb nearly all of it, then add a little chopped parsley and a few chopped shallots. Lay the fish in the pan, add enough red wine to cover, and cook over a hot fire. Garnish with small onions fried in butter and sugar, and sauted mushrooms.

Add one tablespoonful of butter, a teaspoonful of minced parsley, and pepper and salt to taste. Pour over the fish and serve.
