Skillet Pike
By Hookemharry

Posted: May 14, 2012

What You Need:


Four large pike fillets

One chopped medium onion

Olive oil, 2 to 3 tablespoons

Six tablespoons butter or margarine

Two tablespoons dry sweet basil

Four cups light cream

Half to one full cup parmesan cheese, more if you want a thicker sauce


Fresh rosemary


What you do:

In a large skillet, add the olive oil and two tablespoons butter and heat. Next, add the chopped onion and cook until clear in color. Add the fillets and cook for three minutes on each side. They will flake when done. Remove the fillets from the pan and keep them warm. Place each fillet over a bed of fresh rosemary. Spread equal portions of the cooked onion over each fillet. In the same skillet, add the remaining butter and melt. Slowly add the cream, pepper and sweet basil and bring to a fast simmer. Finally, add the grated cheese and stir constantly until the cream and cheese mixture thickens. Pour equal amounts of the white sauce over each fillet and, lastly, sprinkle lightly with the paprika.
