This recipe for liver pate is based on Apicius 9.10.10. The original recipe is written as follows:
Salsum sine salso: iecur quoques, teres et mittes piper aut liquamen aut salem; addes oleum. iecur leporis aut hedi aut agni aut pulli, et si uolueris in formella piscem formabis. oleum uiridem supra adicies.
Salt fish without salt fish: cook liver, pound it and add pepper and either liquamen or salt. Add oil. Use hare’s or kid’s or lamb’s or chicken’s liver, and if you like you can shape it like a fish in a mould. Pour green oil over it.
