Dory Fillet With Creamy Mushroom Dijon Mustard Sauce

My pre-Valentine's Day meal I made for my family a day before Valentine's Day. I know..I know! It's all over ! :P Well, this is a food blog, right? :o) Honestly, I hate rushing around during the week days especially when there are things need to be done according to schedule, like sending kids to school, tuition classes and other activities. It's never been easy being a full-time housewife and a full time driver as well. It ain't something like anyone of those 'Desperate Housewife'. Having tea with friends, relaxing and gossips.... Dream on! So, I had everything done by the weekend.

Ingredients : (serve 3 to 4)
3 dory fillet, halved
salt & pepper to taste
2/3 cup flour

Creamy Mushroom Dijon Mustard Sauce :
1 large onion, chopped
50gm mushroom, sliced
1/2 tbsp dijon mustard/yellow mustard powder
1/2 cup white wine
1-1/2 cup heavy cream
salt to taste

Method :
(1) marinade fish fillet with salt & pepper.
(2) preheat frying pan with 2tbsp butter.
(3) coat fish fillet with flour and pan fry untill cooked, set aside.
(4) using the same frying pan, add in some butter.
(5) stir in chopped onion & sliced mushroom, saute untill fragrant.
(6) add in dijon mustard and saute for a few seconds.
(7) then add in white wine and cook for a minute.
(8) finally, stir in cream and cook untill creamy, add in salt to taste.
(9) off the heat, place the cream sauce over the cooked fish fillet.
This rich and creamy sauce is also perfect to use in any ravioli recipe or maybe gnocchi too.

It should be a satisfying meal cause my boy just sat there and ate his food quietly.... with NO complaints! ha... They both finished everything up. I only managed to finish the fish & salad but I have space for desserts! Well, stay tune! The Brioche recipe is coming next. Enjoy.

Kristy, you are so busy and still cook and bake so much. You are one amazing woman! My children will have to eat stew or soup everyday if I am so busy...all in a pot....haha. Hope you have wonderful day.

Wai Kitt said...

Oh! This was a great Valentine's Meal! I strongly know your feeling,
because everyday i also encounter the same routines as yours.

Honey Bee Sweets said...

Nice! You are for sure a great cook Kristy! I would have asked my family to just dipped their fried fish in ketchup, hahaha! Ok ok, will bookmark this delicious cream recipe to try out, thanks!

My Little Space said...

Diane : Certainly, you're most welcome, my friend!

HH : Thanks! Hope you'll like it too.

Lena : Dijon mustard is the mixture of yellow mustard powder with vinegar and some other ingredients. You can get that from Giant or Jusco supermarket. Or you can just use yellow mustard powder. It tastes as good.

Simona : haha... Thanks! Glad to see you. Hope your computer working in good condition now.

Alisha : Glad you like it too! Thanks alot.

Beth : :o) Thanks!

Belinda : Thanks!

Claudia : haha... So, did you salivate?

Jeannie : Better diet ! I would like that as well.

Denise : Are you serious? Then I shouldn't be cooking. I want to be a Desperate Housewife for a day! haha... We will probably ended up at the kopitiam or KFC or PizzaHut! You take care as well!

Jess : Thank you!

Alice : Dijon mustard is available at any supermarket. It's placed under Mayo department.

Bridgett : Did you just mention SPA! Ooooh... I need one of that too.

The Sudden Cook : Yes, you can replace it with broth. Certainly, it won't taste the same. More like a chowder.

Penny : Thank you!

Blue Wales : All the best!

MaryMoh : My kids & I prefer stew but the problem is my hubby. He's the fuzziest!:o(

WaiKitt : Right! Sometimes I don't even have time to brush my hair. God! ha... So, ended up cutting away my long hair.

Bee : My family is fuzzy eater! They don't eat the same thing everyday. They will start complaining after a while. Hope you will like it too.

Jen : Thanks so much!
