The Dogfish or Rock Salmon was a delicacy in the mid 20th century. The cordon bleu method of cooking was to bake it in a Pie covered with a crust.

However the recipe for the dough was accidentally 'ruined' by a North Country fishfryer who spilt his beer into the dough mix and invented batter! The rest is history as they say.

Why Dog? Well ...... as well as being a clumsy cook Mr. Ramsden couldn't spell!! Honest!

Hiya Shaggy,

Yup mate I'm sure, the Lesser Spotted Doggie was changed to Lesser Spotted catshark, Greater Spotted was changed to Nursehound and the Black Mouthed Doggie was changed to Black mouthed Catshark. They also changed Common Skate from Raja batis to Dipturus Batis.
