1! TWELVE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 9 1934 JEANETTE BEYER GOES FISHING FOR MANY NEW RECIPES SEA FOODS OFFER NEW OPPORTUNITY Globe-Gazette Food Expert Writes of Various Methods for Preparing Lenten Substitutes for Meat. For too many people fish means canned salmon, and It's not necessary st all There are many kinds of fish and more ways of fixing them. Jeanette Beyer goes fishing today and her Table Talk is full of suggestions for appetizing ways of preparing the Lenten fare. Miss Beyer would like to have recipes for meat substitute dishes and if you hav one you are proud of, send it to her in care of the Globe-Gazette. Are You Sem Food Conscious T Did you ever go to a bridge party, or a dinner party or an afternoon tea, and have the conversation take * culinary turn? The first thing you know, everyone is revealing her family's food habits. Next time this happens if there is one woman among them who bakes fancy yeast breads, who discourses about the merits of her favorite cheeses, who knows at least 10 more ways of cooking a fish than frying it and realizes that the market offers a score of fascinating sea foods, be- isldes good old halibut, haddock and cod--listen to that woman, for she Is a rare one. Fish is one of the foods which may distinguish you as knowing a great deal, or very little, about food. .Since it is Lent, and the markets are filled with an abundance of various delicious sea food, what better time than right now to introduce yourself to the lore of fish cookery? Excitement for Menu. Come--worry no more over whether to order chops or roast for tomorrow's dinner. Here is another animal protein, quite as delicious and economical, which will add some excitement to a plodding everyday man. If there isn't some sea fo'od in each week's menus, you're missing some fun. Well, well--what about (in spite of the market's array) some salt codfish? Keep a box of It on hand, for emergencies, and plan,a treat every week or so. (Yes, a treat!) A homely dish, but a popular one is sent by Mrs. M. D. Hamlin, R. D. 4. We suggest her recipe used for a Sunday morning breakfast, with muffins, hot coffee, marmalade and grapefruit to start the meal properly. If there are men in the party, the same menu would be a knockout for Sunday night supper, sub- cx'zs* Hstltutingji fruit salaa for the grape- fnilt and ending the supper with a luscious cake. · Dropped Fish Balls 1 cup salt codfish, 1 egg, 2 cups diced potatoes, 1 tsp. butter, dash · of pepper. Wash fish in cold water and flake finely. Cook fish and potatoes together until potatoes are done. Drain well and mash. Add butter, pepper and beaten egg. Beat -all together well. Have fat in frying kettle very hot. Drop mixture by spoonsful in the hot fat and fry a golden brown. Dip the spoon in the hot fat each time, before dipping the mixture. Serve with tomato or Bechamel sauce, and garnish with parsley. This can, of course, be prepared in shallow fat also. A handsome way of serving a large fish steak, or fillet calls for a plank. A pyrex platter will substitute, or an earthen one. An ordinary baking pan can be used, and with the aid of a pancake turner, the baked fish lifted on to a hot platter, ready for its garnishes. Flanked Fish. Prepare as for "broiled fish." Heat plank, brush with drippings and dust with salt and pepper. Fl«y fish skin side down, doubling thin parts so it will not burn. The oven must be hot before putting in plank. Cook 20 minutes. Reduce to moderate heat and leave in oven 10 to 20 minutes longer. Melt 1 tablespoon butter, add 1 tsp. salt, H tsp. pepper and pour over fish. Garnish with potato roses, lemon and parsley and serve on plank. Carrie Dean. Mrs. Linderman's method of baking is different, but equally delicious. Baked Fish. One lemon or gray sole about 3% to 4 Ibs. Have the fish dealer fillet it into 4 fillets. If you cannot get lemon or gray sole use 2 or 3 medium sized fillets of haddock. One-half cup butter (M, Ib.) 1 egg Bread crumbs, salt, black pepper. Wash fish in cold water. Break the whole egg on a platter and.beat slightly with fork sufficiently to thoroughly mix white and yoke. Place on another plate some bread crumbs, dip the fish in the egg so it is all covered · with egg, then quickly lift it over to the bread crumbs and press the bread crumbs all over it. When all the fish is dipped in egg and break crumbs, prepare baking pan. Place in large baking pan % cup butter and put pan in hot oven to brown the butter. Watch carefully that butter does not burn. Let butter get brown, not just melted, but browned. The browning of the butter is very important. When butter is nice and brown, take pan from oven and immediately put fish into sizzling butter. Sprinkle fish with a little salt and black pepper, then baste the hot butter over it. Continue basting until you have the butter all over the fish. Then return pan to the CLOSING OUT SALE MONDAY, MARCH 12,1934--1 P. M.
