  Categories: Fish/sea, Sauces
       Yield: 4 servings
 ----------------------------MAITRE D“HOTEL SAUCE----------------------------
     1/2    Clove garlic, smashed               1 tb Lemon juice
     1/4 c  Butter                            1/8 ts Pepper
     1/2 ts Salt                                1 tb Finely minced parsley
 ----------------------------------THE FISH----------------------------------
     1/4 c  Yellow cornmeal                   1/4 c  Flour
       4    1-lb. bass, dressed and             4 tb Butter
            And skinned                              Salt and fresh pepper
   This recipe includes a very simple sauce that enhances sauteed, broiled or
   baked fish.  It can be made in camp if you brought parsley and usually
   impresses any old ”fried fish angler."
   Make the sauce first.
     In a bowl set the butter out to soften.  Then cream it with a fork and
   then a spoon until it is light and fluffy.  Work in the salt and pepper.
     Mix the smashed garlic and the lemon juice, then work this liquid into
   the butter.  Take a bit of time to do this.
     Mix in the parsley and serve in a gravy boat with a spoon.
     Pan fry the bass remembering to brown the fish on both sides but not to
   over cook.
     Serve hot on hot plates and pass the sauce.
