  1. ½ pound mushrooms, cleaned and sliced thin
  2. ¼ cup white wine
  3. Few drops of lemon juice
  4. 1 chicken bouillon cube or scant teaspoon chicken base
  5. Pinch of white pepper
  6. 1 Tbsp. butter or canola oil
  7. 1 ½ Tbsp. flour
  8. ¼ cup whipping cream
  9. Few drops “Maggi” seasoning
  10. Salt and white pepper, to taste

Fish:

  1. 8 pieces (2-3 oz. each) trout fillet (or mahimahi, sole, perch, or snapper)
  2. Salt, to taste
  3. Lemon juice
  4. Flour
  5. 2 eggs, beaten
  6. ½ stick butter or 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  7. 2 bananas, sliced lengthwise, quartered
  8. Mushroom sauce (recipe above)

Garnish:

  1. Chopped parsley
  2. Lemon wedges

To prepare mushroom sauce, place mushrooms, white wine, lemon juice, chicken base, and white pepper in saucepan; bring to a boil.  Simmer over medium heat until mushrooms are tender and cooked through.  Remove from heat and set aside.  In another saucepan, make a roux; melt butter over low heat, whisk in flour, stirring constantly.  Strain mushroom liquid into roux; bring to a boil and add cream, mushrooms, Maggi, and simmer gently for a few minutes. Check seasoning; add salt and white pepper if necessary.  Set aside: keep warm.

For Fish:

Season fish fillets with salt and lemon juice.  Dust with flour and dip in egg; sauté in butter or oil 1 to 2 minutes.  Place fish on mushroom sauce.  Sauté bananas in 1 Tbsp. butter or canola oil and place on top of fish.  For extra flavor and calories, pour a little brown butter over it if desired.  Sprinkle with chopped parsley and garnish with lemon wedges.
