Great Aunt Barbara

Great Aunt Barbara's recipe was in my grandmother's recipe book, which she kept as a young girl. Great Aunt Barbara would only visit when the salmon and mullet were in season. She was an avid fisherwoman. My grandmother said she was a beautiful single lady with long auburn hair that she wore in a long braid and who could sing like an angel.
