A nice quick dish. Try varying the herbs-sage tarragon or basil are all good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss the fillets in the flour, and shake off any excess.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, and cook the fillets for 5 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown.
  3. Sprinkle on the thyme and turn the fillets over.
  4. Add the sherry and half the cream and boil for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Turn the fillets again and pour over the remaining cream.
  6. Season to taste and serve.
  7. I like this with a jacket potato and a green vegetable.
  8. Also a nice young riesling.

Very tasty. I loved the lemon thyme flavour. I served it with roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli. Thanks Jan!

I can not tell you how good this was. We loved it the family really enjoyed it. I only made one sub and it was to use fat free half and half instead of cream. Wow we can not wait to use the sauce with a nice steak. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!!!
