Haddock Fillets with Sauce

(Soslu Mezgit Baligi)

Haddock Fillets with Sauce
250-300 g Haddock (or Sole etc.) fillets, 4 pieces frozen
1 tbsp butter
1 onion, copped
1 garlic clove, chopped
125 gr mushrooms, sliced (fresh or canned)
1 medium tomato, peeled and diced
1 tbsp crushed tomato, canned
Freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup water

125 gr cooked shrimp, frozen or fresh, cooked, peeled and deveined

1 egg yolk
1/4 cup cream
2 tbsp lemon juice

4 lemon slices
2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped

Saute the onion with butter for 3-4 minutes in a pan. Add the garlic and when the smell comes out, add the mushrooms, tomato, crushed tomato, salt, pepper and stir.

Place 4 fillets on top of the vegetables in the pan. Add the water. First turn the heat to high. When the water starts bubbling, turn the heat down and simmer. Cover the lid and cook for 10 minutes. Place the fillets on a service plate. Cover with aluminum foil to keep them warm.

Add the shrimps into the pan, cook until half of the remaining water evaporates.

Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolk, lemon juice and cream. Pour slowly into the pan. Mix and turn the heat off. Don't boil the cream mixture. Pour all over the fish. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley.

Meal Ideas:
