 Ingredients List

  • ----------------------------MAITRE D"HOTEL SAUCE----------------------------
  • 1/2 Clove garlic, smashed
  • 1/4 c Butter
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 1/8 ts Pepper
  • 1 tb Finely minced parsley


1/4 c Yellow cornmeal
4 1-lb. bass, dressed and
And skinned
1/4 c Flour
4 tb Butter
Salt and fresh pepper

This recipe includes a very simple sauce that enhances sauteed, broiled or
baked fish. It can be made in camp if you brought parsley and usually
impresses any old "fried fish angler."

Make the sauce first.
In a bowl set the butter out to soften. Then cream it with a fork and
then a spoon until it is light and fluffy. Work in the salt and pepper.
Mix the smashed garlic and the lemon juice, then work this liquid into
the butter. Take a bit of time to do this.
Mix in the parsley and serve in a gravy boat with a spoon.
Pan fry the bass remembering to brown the fish on both sides but not to
over cook.
Serve hot on hot plates and pass the sauce.
