Ripped out of one of my old cookbooks. It had recipes for everyday of the year but I don't remember the name of it. Stove top sauce and broiled fish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and saute garlic for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and add flour, mixing well with a whisk. Return to medium heat and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring often.
  4. Add evaporated milk, a little at a time, continuing to whisk sauce as it thickens.
  5. Add sherry and allow sauce to simmer. Stir in 1/4 cup lowfat milk or more, if needed, to thin sauce to a creamy consistency (should lightly coat a spoon).
  6. Add lemon juice and blend well; set aside.
  7. Place fish in a small broiling pan that has been sprayed with a non-stick cooking spray. Season lightly with pepper.
  8. Dot each piece with butter and broil for 4-5 minutes per side. Salmon is cooked when fish is no longer translucent. Do not overcook.
  9. Serve immediately with reserved sauce.

Just made this for dinner tonight. It is easy to make and tastes wonderful. I will add a little more garlic though next time.

Made this recipe last night and it was good. The salmon I liked the ease of preparation. My husband liked the sauce but I thought it was a bit toned down. I will use this recipe again but will try to add more flavor. All in all, this is very good!
