This cream sauce is made from the same base as the greens with cream dressing. For a very quick and delicious meal, all you need to do is poach the fish and whip up the sauce.
1
Bring 1 quart water to a boil in a large skillet and add the salt. Drop the fish fillets into the boiling water and bring the water back to a gentle boil. Cover and remove from the heat. Poach the fish in the hot water for about 2 minutes.
2
For the sauce, pour the cream into a small bowl and add the salt and pepper. Whip with a whisk for about 15 seconds, or just until frothy.
3
Stir in the red wine vinegar, herbs, and horseradish.
4
Using a skimmer, remove the fish from the water and rest on a paper towel-lined plate. Blot dry.
5
Transfer each fillet onto a warmed plate. Coat with sauce and serve immediately.
