Delicious and cheesy but definitely NOT low fat! The onion and mustard make this fish in cream sauce seductively flavorful.

This was very good. I used 1/2 skim milk and 1/2 2% instead of all the cream. I also added a dash of cayenne pepper to cream sauce. Was just rich enough definitely didn't miss all the cream or all the calories. Read More

First I have to say that I am American and my husband is 100% Scottish. The only way he has ever had fish is as 'fish and chips'...ie: deep fried. I gave him two options from this site and he said 'suprise me'. So I made this one. He absolutly loved it and so did I!! Like others I added mushrooms but I did not have cream so I used whole milk and added a bit of cream cheese (cutting out the other cheeses). Also I only had Scottish spicy mustand as I am living in Scotland but still love this site. And I have to say it was amazing and even though I only ate this 4 hours ago I am craving it already and so is my husband. I am only 22 but have been cooking for many years and all I went onto this site for today was cooking times but this idea was very good. I would have never thought to put this sauce with fish but it really worked! Thank you!! Read More

This was quite good. The husband loved it. I would recommend if you cut the recipe in half do NOT cut the sauce in half as well. You really need the full amount. Read More

Excellent! My husband says "this is a keeper!" I didn't have haddock so I used cod. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you Cathy. Read More

I added a little more single cream and a chopped hard-boiled egg and it was delicious... definitely one I'll be making again. (Measuring in cups is still a new concept for me but I'm getting the hang of it now!) Read More

This works well with tilapia if haddock is unavailable. It was a hit until my husband a cardiologist heard the ingredients! I probably won't be making it too often! Read More

My family loved this. I am not a cook at all. This was easy to make and easy to clean. My wife is jealous. We are on the low carb diet so this was perfect. Thanks Read More
