This was terrific. I used tilapia and substituted sauvignon blanc for marsala because I had them on hand. I used a light sprinkle of garlic powder instead of the garlic because I wasn't looking for much garlic flavor in my francese sauce. Next time I will make a slurry of the cornstarch - as I usually do - I wasn't thinking and added it straight to the pan and ended up with clumps that had to be strained.
