Yield 4 servings


  • 4 (1-pound) dressed pompano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 sprigs fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried whole thyme
  • 1 bay leaf, crushed
  • 1 cup Chablis or other dry white wine

How to Make It

  1. Rinse fish thoroughly in cold water; pat dry. Rub fish with salt and pepper; set aside.

  2. Spread onion, parsley, thyme, and bay leaf evenly in bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9- x 2- inch baking dish. Place fish on top of vegetables; pour wine over top. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes.

  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook over medium heat until lightly browned. Add tomatoes and mushrooms, mixing well; simmer 10 minutes.

  4. Pour sauce over fish; cover with cracker crumbs. Dot with remaining butter. Bake at 350° an additional 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

  5. Garnish fish with lemon wedges: serve immediately.
