      Very tasty. I did not have any red bell pepper on hand so I used a bit of jarred pimento instead. Also, I used half oregano and half rosemary instead of tarragon. It turned out great! Will definitely make this again.

      Sure to be in my Top 20 for 2009! The sauce was very thick, but I let is completely cover the top of my filets; the fish stayed very moist. The little bit of celery, onion and sweet red bell pepper set this off perfectly. DH was planning which fish he would use this method next! Thanks for posting this recipe, Sue L! Made for Spring 2009 Pick A Chef.

      Very tastey, loved the sauce, but found I had to dilute it with a little more milk, it was quite thick, next time I will use less flour. I had to use dried tarragon and basil, had no fresh around and I used light Havarti cheese, worked lovely!! I will be making this again , thanks for posting.
