      1/4   ts           Freshly ground white pepper
      1/4   ts           Hot pepper sauce

    2       tb           Dry sherry
    1       tb           Dark rum
 
   1. Combine first 8 ingredients in large pot.  Add
   water.  Bring to boil, skimming surface occasionally.
   Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes, skimming surface
   occasionally.  Add fish fillets and cook until opaque,
   about 5 minutes.  Remove fish fillets using slotted
   spoon and flake slightly, then set aside.  Strain
   stock through fine sieve; do not press on solids.
   Return stock to pot and simmer gently until reduced to
   5 cups, about 5 minutes.
   
   2. Meanwhile, melt butter in heavy large saucepan over
   medium-high heat. Add 2 celery stalks, 1 carrot and 1
   chopped onion and cook until vegetables begin to
   soften,  stirring frequently, about 8 minutes. Mix in
   all remaining ingredients except sherry and rum. Add
   stock and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20
   minutes.
   
   3.  Discard bay leaf.  Mix in sherry and rum  (or use
   sherry pepper sauce). Add fish, and serve immediately.
   (Note:  The Bermudians add sherry peppers at the
   table.)
