  • 25 g Flora Buttery
  • 25 g flour
  • 500 ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 Knorr Fish Stock Cube
  • 50 ml Elmlea Double (optional)
  • 4 cod fillets
  • 4 1/2 tbsps chopped parsley
  • 1 Gently melt the Flora Buttery in a medium deep, heavy frying pan. Add the flour and whisk together to get rid of any lumps. Cook the roux over a very low heat whisking continuously.
  • 2 After 2-3 minutes, add a little milk to the roux and whisk again, mixing thoroughly. Continue gradually adding the milk a little at a time, whisking constantly until all the milk has been added. Bring to the boil.
  • 3 Add in the Knorr Fish Stock cube to flavour the sauce and whisk until dissolved. Reduce heat to a simmer and add in the Elmlea, if using, and whisk in thoroughly.
  • 4 Carefully place the fish in the pan, shaking the pan to coat the cod in the sauce.
  • 5 Poach the cod in the sauce over a low heat for 4-5 minutes without allowing the sauce to come to the boil until the fish is cooked, carefully turning over each piece of fish after 2 minutes. Sprinkle over the parsley and shake the fish to coat it in the parsley sauce.
  • 6 Carefully transfer the fish to a serving dish, spoon over the parsley sauce and serve.
