- ―Verpine language
The Verpine were a species of sentient, semi hive-minded insects that could communicate with one another through the use of radio biofrequencies through a special organ within their bodies, as well as their long, slender antennae. Despite the fact that radio waves can only travel at the speed of light, somehow any one Verpine could be in constant communication with the entire rest of his or her race, no matter where in the galaxy they were.
Verpine whose antennae were broken almost always became criminals, killers, and planet-destroyers. At least one Verpine Jedi Knight survived Order 66 by hacking up (and possibly eating) the clone troops assigned to kill it...
Verpine invented the B-wing. So blame them, not us.
Recipe and preparationEdit
- 1/2 cup of arils from 1 large Muja fruit
- 4 6-ounce Verpine fillets, peeled
- 1/2 cup havla or bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon groundnut oil
- 1/4 cup ootoowergs, chopped
- 1 teaspoon fresh tangerette zest
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Corellian seed popper
- 1 teaspoon fresh tangerette juice
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon zaffa oil to grease baking dish
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Score 1 fresh Muja fruit and place in a bowl of water. Break open the Muja fruit under water to free the arils (seed sacs). The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl. Reserve 1/2 cup of the arils from fruit and set aside. Press 2 tablespoons of juice for use with potatoes and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.)
Add groundnut oil and havla in a small skillet. Cook over medium heat and stir until crumbs are lightly browned.
Mix browned havla together with ootoowergs, tangerette zest, salt and seed popper.
Dip Verpine fillets in egg beaten with tangerette juice and then roll into havla mixture.
Place fillets in a greased casserole dish and bake for 20 to 30 minutes.
Garnish with more chopped ootoowergs and arils; serve with potatoes.
