Ocean perch are of delicate flavor. Your met hot! of preparing them should enhance, rather than overpower, that flavor- Many homemakers have a tendency to overcook the fish fillets so that they're too dry. Cook the fillets only until they lose their .semi-transparent look become a creamy-white color. At this stage the fish will flake easily and be moist and tender. A quick sauce can be made for the sauteed, baked or broiled fillets by using condensed mushroom soup. Dilute the mushroom soup with a little milk or thin cream. One of my favorite tricks is to add Just a little soy sauoe to the soup when I heat it. Here's a deluxe way to treat quick-frozen perch for a Friday night company supper; OCEAN' PERCH WITH ALMOND GRAVY Ingredients: 1 package (about 1 pound) quick-frozen ocean perch fillets, 4 tablespoons butter, l$ cuji slivered blanched almonds, 2 teaspoons flour, 1,4 teaspoon salt, dash of pepper, 1 cup light cream, lemon Bltees. paprika. Method: Cut the quick-frozen ocean perch fillets into serving pieces or thaw enough to separate. Melt butter In large skillet over moderate heat and cook fillets, turning once, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove fish from skillet and keep hot. Saute almonds in the butter left In skillet over low heat until golden color, stirring often with a wooden spoon and scraping up any fish particles from bottom of pan. Watch carefully so as not to get fllmondB too brown. Stir In flour, salt, and pepper. Stirring constantly, add cream, gradually and cook until thickened. Arrange fish on platter. Pour almond gravy over fish. Garnish with lemon slices sprinkled with paprika Makes 4 servings.
