I am working though posting some recipes from my Portuguese cookbooks, this one is adapted from Portuguese cooking by Hilaire Walden. I like this recipe because it's great for the weight conscious, no butter, egg or milk in the sauce, it uses potato to thicken the sauce. I plan on making this recipe but if you make it before I do, I would appreciate the feedback. You could use a leftover boiled or mashed potato, instead of cooking just one especially for this if you wanted to.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Roughly chop the parsley and the garlic.
- 2Boil (or microwave) the potato (or use a leftover cooked one) and mash with the parsley, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper, and then add enough water to the mix and beat or whisk to produce a saucy consistency.
- 3Salt and pepper the flounder fillets. Combine the wine and fish stock in a frypan and heat, once it's simmering add the fish in one layer and poach the fish gently for 7-10 minutes until the fish is cooked though. (cooking time depends on the size of the fillets).
- 4Serve the fish immediately with the parsley sauce.
