I made this recipe last week to accompany fish fingers! My wife said that I must share this with other people because it's sooooo good. The recipe below is for 2 people.

Excellent, quick and easy. Loved the pickled onion. Didn't have any gherkin so used dill pickle relish (what a great way to use that up!) Forgot the garlic, added some lemon juice to take some of the creaminess away, a dash of Worcestershire sauce (which I don't think added anything) and threw in a few capers. Wow, it was good, and that from a Brit who is very fussy about what goes with fish and chips! Thanks!
