  1. I love the expressions. I just read Mark Kurlansky’s _Salt_ and I wonder what salty 17th century Spanish recipe Martha’s preparing for the fish here. It would have chili in in, por supuesto: by 1618 chilies were well-established in Europe, and by that time they were probably conquering Asia too.
