This is such a simple dish to make...everyone has made a similar dish at one time I am sure. But sometimes we forget how tasty and nutritious these simple recipes are.
You will need:
Melt the butter in a large frying pan on medium heat. Sprinkle in the flour. Heat and stir for a minute. Slowly add the broth, stirring constantly until it boils and thickens. Add the lemon juice and the dried tarragon and stir. Pat the fillets dry with a paper towel and then add to the sauce. Reduce the heat to low and simmer covered for about 8 minutes until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Garnish with fresh tarragon.
- 2 tbsp butter
