DIRECTIONS

  • Cut fillets into 3-4 ounce pieces, fold in half and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place in buttered flameproof baking dish. Add onion, parsley, lemon juice, wine and water.
  • Cover dish and heat on medium heat to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 6 to 8 minutes, or just until the fish flakes easily.
  • Transfer fillets into to flameproof serving platter with a slotted pancake turner and keep warm.
  • Stir Fish Veloute Sauce into liquid in baking dish. Cook until mixture is reduced one-third. Stir in butter until the butter is melted.
  • Strain sauce through a couple of layers of cheesecloth and spoon over the fillets. Place platter under a very hot broiler just until the sauce turns golden.
  • Make a pyramid of heated seedless grapes in the middle of the platter and serve immediately.
  • Serves 6.
  • For Fish Veloute Sauce, melt the butter in a heavy saucepan. Stir in flour and cook very slowly until flour starts to change color and turn golden brown. Heat the clam broth (or fish stock/court bouillon), then add to the roux a cup at a time, mixing all the time with a wire whip. Skim when necessary. Add the remaining ingredients and cook very slowly for 1 hour, stirring often. Skim when necessary. When the sauce is the consistency of heavy cream, remove from heat. Strain through a fine sieve and cool. Stir occasionally while cooling to prevent a skin from forming on the top. Cover and store in refrigerator. Use within 1 week.
