    twissis's Note:

    This easy-to-fix recipe is from the Australian Women's Weekly *Best Seafood Recipes* cookbook & turns whatever variety of white fish fillets you choose into a company-worthy taste treat. The sauce is the *STAR* here & can be made several hrs in advance, but the fish fillets are best cooked just prior to serving. *Enjoy*

      Scaled this down for 1 serving and it was a nice filling meal. Made with swai fish and it was a nice paring with the cream sauce. It was seasoned perfectly. Used shallots rather than onions. Made for ZWT8.

      This is absolutely gorgeous!!! I wanted to make this with halibut tonight. I could not get any and ended up trying it with a new fish we have never had, it was so good and went exceptionally well with the sauce. I loved it pan fried and the only thing I did different was to salt and pepper the flour and add a little cayenne for seasoning. The sauce is outstanding and goes so well with the fish. We loved, loved and loved. Thanks twissis we will be enjoying this one often a great family meal, that would also be exceptional and get rave views from company.

      Easily a 5 star recipe!! My whole family devoured this fish dish and that is a major accomplishment, since my kids aren't normally wild about fish. The pan frying method is wonderful for this..keeping the outside of the fish crispy which holds up well to the DELICIOUS bacon mushroom sauce. Did I mention that the sauce was DELICIOUS?! Wow that's a lot of flavor and creaminess packed into an easy-to-prepare sauce. I add another 1/4 cup of heavy cream to thin the sauce a bit (1 cup total). We used flounder for the fish and did salt and pepper them after dredging in flour. This recipe is as simple as can be with impressive results. ~Made for the 12 Days of Christmas Aussie/NZ Swap~
