Fish Cock - a local recipe

>> Feb 21, 2010



Kalakukko, directly translated as fish cock (cock as in rooster not male appendage) is somewhat of a local delicacy and tastes a damn sight better than it looks.

It is, to all intents and purposes, a fish filled loaf.








Ingredients:
Pastry.
3dl water
2tsp salt
4dl rye flour
4dl plain flour
25 butter or oil
Filling.
1200g small fish -white bait, vendace, perch
200g bacon
1tbsp salt
1tbsp dry uncooked rice




Mix water, salt, flour and butter/oil to form a dough








Roll out dough to roughly 30cm wide, 40cm high and 1/2 cm thick.






Sprinkle uncooked dry rice in centre of dough and then pile fish on top in layers, lightly salting each layer.







Lay the bacon on top.







Fold edges in, closing the seam by wetting it slightly







Close up the other side, sealing seams by wetting them slightly.  Make sure it is a closed parcel so that no liquid or air can escape.






Wrap it in baking paper /greaseproof paper.





Wrap it in foil.

Bake at 200C for 2 hours and then 75-100C for 12 hours.
