Original Receipt in 'The Queen-like Closet or Rich Cabinet' by Hannah Woolley (Wooley 1672)
75. To make a Carp Pie.
Have your Paste ready laid in your bake-pan, and some Butter in the bottom.
Then take a large Carp, scale him, gut him, and wash him clean, and dry him in a Cloth, then lay him into your Pan with some whole Cloves, Mace, and sliced Nutmeg, with two handfuls of Capers, then put in some White Wine, and mix some Butter with Salt, and lay all over; then close it, and bake it; this is very good to be eaten either hot or cold.
For other types of fish pie see:
