"Ripped out of one of my old cookbooks. It had recipes for everyday of the year but I don't remember the name of it. Stove top sauce and broiled fish."

Ready In:




  • Preheat broiler.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and saute garlic for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add flour, mixing well with a whisk. Return to medium heat and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add evaporated milk, a little at a time, continuing to whisk sauce as it thickens.
  • Add sherry and allow sauce to simmer. Stir in 1/4 cup lowfat milk or more, if needed, to thin sauce to a creamy consistency (should lightly coat a spoon).
  • Add lemon juice and blend well; set aside.
  • Place fish in a small broiling pan that has been sprayed with a non-stick cooking spray. Season lightly with pepper.
  • Dot each piece with butter and broil for 4-5 minutes per side. Salmon is cooked when fish is no longer translucent. Do not overcook.
  • Serve immediately with reserved sauce.

  1. I made this for dinner tonight, it was just okay for us. Thanks
  2. Just made this for dinner tonight. It is easy to make and tastes wonderful. I will add a little more garlic though next time.
  3. Made this recipe last night and it was good. The salmon I liked the ease of preparation. My husband liked the sauce but I thought it was a bit toned down. I will use this recipe again but will try to add more flavor. All in all, this is very good!
  4. I really like the salmon the way it was prepared but I do think that the sauce needed help in that the flavor needed help. This was an easy dish to make.
  5. Awesome!! Simple and elegant, the sauce is superb. I also used filets. I am going to use this for a Mother& Daughter dinner that i am catering at my church for 80 ladies. I'm sure it will be a hit.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
