Fish in Mustard Sauce
Normally I am not a big fish fan at all; and one of my favourite german dishes is Eggs with mustard sauce. My son loves fish and I really wanted to eat the mustard sauce and I was wondering how would be the combination of one of my favourite dishes mixed with fish.
I was really sceptic about it, but I have to say it was surprisingly delicious and I am so happy that now I can have my mustard sauce and my son his fish with this new recipe and for sure we are going to have more fish in mustard sauce in future.
800 g white fish fillets
1 tbsp margarine
1 tbsp flour
250 ml rice milk
2 tsp mustard
½ tsp salt for seasoning fish
Extra salt and pepper to season as required
Pinch of ground nutmeg
1 tbsp dried parsley
- Preheat the oven to 220 C. Wash the fish fillets and dry carefully with a kitchen towel. Grease a baking dish with some margarine and place the fish in the baking dish. Season the fish on both sides with some salt.
- Heat the margarine in a large saucepan and when it has melted, add the flour. Stir the mixture until the flour has absorbed the margarine, then gradually add the rice milk and keep stirring the mixture. Add the mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg into the sauce and keep stirring the sauce. Simmer the sauce over a gentle heat for a few minutes until the sauce is creamy and thickened, stirring occasionally. At the end add the dried parsley.
- Pour the mustard sauce over the fish, add pieces of margarine according to taste and cook for about 15 – 20 minutes in the oven.
- This dish is delicious served with potatoes or a salad.
