This cheese sauce is particularly tasty, so it helps turn ordinary fish fry into a culinary delight. You might like this cheese sauce for all sorts of savory applications.  VERY GOOD!

6 sea bass fillets, OR any other fish
  like Cod or Tilapia
4 tbsp bacon fat, OR olive oil (60 mL)
Seasoning salt
Black pepper
Cheese Sauce:
4 oz regular cream cheese (125 g)
3 tbsp butter (45 mL)
1/cup Low-Carb Milk, (75 mL)
  OR whipping cream
1/tsp salt, OR to taste (1 mL)
1/tsp white pepper (0.5 mL)
2/cup grated Cheddar cheese (150 mL)
1 tbsp water, optional (15 mL)

Wash fish fillets under cold running water.  Pat dry with paper towels. 

In nonstick frying pan (ideally one would have 2 pans going at the same time), in 2 tbsp (30 mL) bacon fat, OR olive oil, over medium heat, cook 3 fish fillets about 3 minutes on one side.  Sprinkle lightly with seasoning salt and black pepper.  Turn fish and sprinkle the other side with seasoning salt and black pepper as well.  Cook another 3 minutes and turn again and cook another minute, or until fish flakes easily when cut with a knife.  Repeat with remaining bacon fat and fish fillets. Cover each fillet with Cheese Sauce and serve immediately. 

In nonstick pan or pot, combine cream cheese, butter, Low-Carb Milk, page 25, OR whipping cream, salt and white pepper.  Whisk occasionally.  Stir in Monterey Jack, OR Cheddar cheese until it melts and sauce is smooth.  If necessary, add a tablespoon (15 mL) of water.

Helpful Hints:  *Spreadable cream cheese may be used to make a less expensive sauce. It will be a slightly thinner sauce. Buy the spreadable cream cheese in the bigger tubs, if possible.  Double the recipe when needed for covering a very large dish of vegetables, such as the Vegetable Au GratinCasserole.
