    CarrolJ's Note:

    This is a variation of a recipe which I found in an old cookbook I purchased over 25 years ago titled, The Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking. I have changed it slightly to adapt to a less expensive version. It is really good with any kind of fish...but my favorite is with fresh salmon. If you read the entire recipe you will see that although it looks complicated at first glance it really is very easy and quick to make. Preparation time includes thickening time of cooking the sauce.

      Well Carrol, I have a very happy Granddad here today, he loves fish, and when I mentioned your recipe he asked to have it for Sunday dinner. I have never seen him clear his plate so fast, and he gave it five stars. I made it with haddock fillets which is a white fish not sure if you get that in US, as the fillets were quite big I did have to cook them a bit longer. The sauce was lovely, the seasoning was just right, the sweet paprika gave it a nice colour as well as a nice taste,you did say that I wouldn't be dissappointed and we were definitely not especially granddad.Thanks for a keeper. Made for PAC spring 2009.
