DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE TRADITIONAL BECHAMEL DE POISSON

Place the fish in a saucepan with all the ingredients indicated for cooking fish. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Make sure there is enough water for the fish to stay submerged at all times.

Carefully remove the fish in one piece after cooking and transfer it to a serving platter.

Under medium heat, place the butter in the bottom of a separate saucepan, melt it slowly and add the sifted flour into the simmering fat. Mix vigorously and cook until golden

Dilute the milk and the strained broth, add while stirring simultaneously and season the sauce with bay leaves, salt, nutmeg and pepper as desired.

Pour over the cooked fish in the serving dish and serve immediately.
