Recipe for Glaukos
(Fish in Fresh Herb Sauce)

By Sotades The Keyless Girls, quoted in Athenaeus The Partying Professors

A good fish recipe and simple to make. AFAIK, this recipe comes from Grant and was inserted by original site author (have I not said to buy these author's books? Please do so and support them.... Hopefully, will not get a nasty letter about this)...

Original recipe:

Translation: I take two particularly large pieces of glaukos (Impossible to identify this fish, but it is thought to be anything from a blue shark to a type of horse mackerel) (a grey fish) with the heads removed, put them in a large casserole and add sparingly some green herbs, cumin, salt, water, and oilve.


  • 4 cod steaks
  • 60 ml/2fl oz olive oil
  • 3 tsp ground cumin
  • A handful of fresh:
    • parsley

  • Finely chop the fresh herbs and put them into a few tablespoons of water, olive oil, sea salt and ground cumin in a pyrex dish, stir to mix them and then add the cod steaks.
  • Cook in the oven at 150°c/300°f/Gas mark 2 for 1 hour.
