Baked Fish

Baked Fish
1 1/2 lbs. fish fillets cut in serving pieces
1/4 tsp. salt
dash pepper
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/4 cup white sauce flavoured with 2 tsp. dry mustard powder
1/3 cup buttered bread crumbs
1 Tbsp. minced parsley

Preheat oven to 350oF.

Place the fish fillets in a greased baking dish.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
Pour white sauce over fish.
Sprinkle with buttered bread crumbs and minced parsley.
Bake 35 minutes.

Tip: prepare bread crumbs and white sauce ahead of time, then proceed with recipe.
Low-calorie version: omit white sauce and buttered bread crumbs. Dress with lemon juice and parsley only.

White sauce recipe
1-4 Tbsp. margarine
1-4 Tbsp. flour
1 cup milk or other liquid (e.g. stock, tomato juice). Various liquids may be combined.

Melt margarine in saucepan.
Stir in flour and cook, stirring, until bubbly.
Add liquid and cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and thick.

(Vary the amount of margarine and flour to vary the thickness. 2 Tbsp. of each will produce a sauce of the same thickness as undiluted cream soup.)

Despite the number of steps (grate onions, grind seeds for paste, purée tomatoes, steam rice) most can be completed while the fish is marinating.  Add another 15 minutes cooking time and your meal is ready.  Fish fillets steamed in a thick, spicy tomato gravy.  And really good!  I am glad I have leftovers; can’t wait to have this again.
