Perch with a French sauce

(Recipe #30, page 132)

Take perch weighing about ½ pound each, scale and gut them, wash them thoroughly, salt them, and place them in a casserole with plenty of butter. As soon as the have been heated on both sides, sprinkle some flour on them, turn the fish in it, and add sufficient French white wine to cover. At the same time, add some finely ground allspice, minced parsley, finely chopped shallots, and cook the perch slowly, tightly covered; they must not be allowed to fall apart.
