How to Make It
Wash fish well; place in salted water to cover for 30 minutes. Drain. Pat fish dry; dredge in flour, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap fish in cheesecloth, and tie ends securely.
Combine water, vinegar, 2 teaspoons salt, onion, peppercorns, and mace in a large Dutch oven; stir well. Add fish; simmer, uncovered, over low heat 30 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup fish stock. Set fish aside, and keep warm.
Combine butter and flour in a medium saucepan, stirring until lightly browned. Stir in reserved fish stock, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, blending until smooth. Remove fish from cheesecloth; place on a large serving platter, and pour sauce over top. Sprinkle with parsley, and garnish with lemon slices.
