* Translated by Lori Siegel*

Take a large fish. Cut it into thick slices, fry. Remove the meat into a dish; put the skin, head, and bones into a saucepan. In the remaining oil fry 2 chopped onions until they turn a clear brown color.

Pour the onions and the oil into the saucepan on the rest of the fish (the bones and head). Bring to a boil for ½ hour with some parsley and salt.

Strain through a strainer and use a skimmer to gather all the broth. Put this broth in a pan, bring to a boil and pour in the rice. Stir, cooking on a low heat. Pour the rice onto a plate. Cover it with pieces of fish and the meat fried earlier, and the pignolis.

If you want a sauce, reserve a little fish broth, add it to some water and the juice of a lemon and a celery stalk cut into small pieces, boil until celery is cooked.
