  • Ingredients

        Fish:

      • 1 1/2–2 lbs (680–910g) salmon or halibut, sliced 1-inch (2.5-cm) thick (or use unsliced sole fillet)
      • 1 1/2–2 cups (360–480mL) water
      • 1/2 tsp of sea salt
      • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
      • 1 Tbs olive oil
      • 2 Tbs of chopped parsley for garnish
      • 3 Tbs of unbleached white flour

        Sauce:

      • 1/2 cup cold water
      • Juice of 2 medium-sized lemons
      • 2 eggs
  • Directions

    • Place water, salt, parsley, oil, and fish (with skin facing up) in a deep skillet and simmer for 10–15 minutes until fish is thoroughly cooked. Carefully remove fish and place on serving platter, skin down. Leave cooking water in skillet.
    • While the fish is cooking, mix flour with water. Stir until smooth. Add juice of lemons to well-beaten eggs. Add lemon and eggs to flour mixture and stir until creamy.
