  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • Haddock fillets, 12 oz
  • 10 oz Baby lima beans
  • 1/3 c Dry sherry (optional)


Place the mushrooms, consomme, corn meal, parsley, garlic, basil, onion,

The Iroquois were blessed with clear, cool lakes and sparkling streams, and
both served up an abundance of fish. Fish soup, or u'nega'gei, as the
Iroquois called it, was a favorite. One early recipe is described, "Fish of
any kind is boiled in a pot with a quantity of water. It is then removed
and coarse corn siftings stirred in to make a soup of suitable
consistency." When wild onions and greens were available, they were
usually tossed into the soup pot, adding both color and flavor.
