Fish with onion sauce

Well, I suspect you've guessed - but our fishmonger didn't have any halibut, so we had to choose cod instead. Never mind, it didn't ruin anything - the cod was succulent.
We adapted a recipe for onion sauce by James Martin. The dish included mussels, which we love.
For the onion sauce - to serve two - we chopped one onion (very finely) and cooked in butter until brown. Then we added some finely sliced leeks, a couple of mushrooms, a pinch of curry powder and half a teaspoon Pernod and cooked with the lid on for 5 minutes until soft. Next, we added about half a glass of dry white wine, boiled, then simmered until the liquid had almost disappeared. This was then left until we were ready to eat.
The half a dozen mussels (per person) were cooked and left until serving.
We added the mussel liquor to the onion sauce and reduced again until the liquid had almost disappeared. Then finally we stirred in 50ml of cream and some dried parsley, boiled then added the cooked mussels and simmered through.
Most of the calories were in the sauce. We used the butter sparingly, and would estimate the whole dish to be somewhere around 500 calories. Cod is very low in calories - 120 calories for each portion. The gnocchi was light and fluffy and a few fried pieces really complimented the dish. Here's how we made the gnocchi last time.
We enjoy our food - and what we have done over the last 20 months, is continue to enjoy our food while losing (lots of) weight. We are now healthier, happier and the weight has NOT gone back on. We believe DIETS do not work in the long term. We found a METHOD of weight loss that bypassed the need to go on yet another silly diet. All the food we eat has been documented on our blog. We hope you enjoy what you see.
