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.

Please keep in mind I am not a fish eater. I was not impressed. I felt the sauce was too thick and as others said missing something. for all the fat anc cal. involved it just is not worth it. I also felt it was too buttery as there was butter floating to the sides of the pan when it cooked. I will not try it again.

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!!

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.

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.

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!)

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!

Absolutely the best haddock I have had in my life. I will definately be making this again in the future. My entire family loved it!

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
