Recipe: Cod with Parsley Sauce

1 cup low-fat (1%) milk
1.25 pounds cod fillets, cut into 4 pieces (if you can't find cod, try halibut, grouper or perch)
4 teaspoons reduced-calorie margarine
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1. In a medium skillet (over medium heat), heat the milk. Add the cod and poach, covered until fish is just opaque in the center, 4-5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the fish to a platter. Be sure to reserve the milk.

2. In a medium sized saucepan (over low heat), melt the margarine. Add the flour and cook until bubbling (about 2 minutes). Remove from the heat and whisk in the milk and broth. Add the parsley, salt and pepper. Return to heat and cook, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens (about 3 minutes). Pour over the fish.

Serves 4.
