Fish fillets in a creamy sauce - Fiskfiléer med krämig sås

Fiskfiléer med krämig sås

Fish can be cooked in many different ways. Here I bake it in the oven, covered with the creamy sauce and a layer of grated cheese.

4 servings

1 lb fish fillets, e.g. plaice,
sole or other flatfish
good 1/3 cup grated cheese
for baking

1 tbsp butter or margarine
1½ tbsps flour
1 cup milk
salt, pepper
scant ¼ cup crème fraîche
good 1/3 cup grated cheese
1½ tbsps fresh or dried chives

Start with the sauce. Melt the fat in a saucepan and stir in the flour. Beat in the milk. Lower the heat and simmer slowly for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Flavour to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the crème fraîche and add cheese and chives. Heat on low heat until the cheese has melted, then set aside.

Rinse and wipe off the fish and place it in an oven-proof, greased dish. Cover each fillet with a few tablespoons sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Bake the fish rather high up in the oven at 225C/gasmark 7 for about 15 minutes.

Serve with boiled potatoes, remaining sauce and a tomato salad.
