    Fish with Lime Sauce

    Source of Recipe

    saving dinner

    List of Ingredients

    2 frozen fish fillets, thawed (use any firm-fleshed fish of your choice)

    Salt and pepper to taste

    1 lime (1/2 juiced, the other half quartered)

    3 tablespoons onion, finely chopped

    1 1/3 tablespoons butter

    1 tablespoon whole wheat flour

    2/3 cup milk, low fat

    3 tablespoons chicken broth (low sodium/no MSG, if available)


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    Season fish fillets with salt and pepper. Place in a small baking dish and squeeze the juice of one half a lime over fish fillets.

    Sprinkle onion over top of fish and bake for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

    Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add flour and then gradually add the milk. Stir constantly over medium-low heat till sauce starts to thicken; salt and pepper to taste. Add chicken broth and continue simmering till sauce has thickened to your liking.

    Place fish on each dinner plate and ladle sauce over the top; garnish with a wedge of lime and serve.
