Boiled Fish

  • 4 pounds cod
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped carrot
  • 1 sprig parsley
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • bay leaf and clove
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
Wash and wipe fish. Cover with boiling water and add remaining ingredients; bring quickly to the boiling point, and keep just below the boiling point fish separates slightly in flakes- about 30 minutes (be patient, you rascal).
A fish kettle is the most convenient receptacle for cooking fish whole. If one is not available, use a piece of cheese cloth just large enough to cover fish and tie loosely with string.
All other boiled fish may be cooked in the same manner as boiled cod.
