I knew looking at the recipe that I would want to saute my mushrooms.....just couldn't imagine cold raw mushrooms sitting atop my perch. I dredged my perch in seasoned flour....added a bit more than salt and pepper to help the taste. My cream/wine sauce was a disaster, but that is my fault. I used fat free half and half to reduce calories, and even before I turned the heat on, it totally separated and curdled. I have to say, I was very happy with my fish and mushrooms with the added spices. Very yummy.
Easy elegant freshwater fish. Probably best with a drier wine. The taste of the wine will come through, so choose a good one. I thought there was an awkward contrast between the textures of the fish and the sauce, and the raw mushrooms. I would saute the mushrooms just a smidge next time. The technique of warming and steeping the wine/cream mixtures makes the preparation a little easier, with less attention needed to avoid separating the cream.
