1 medium-sized onion, quartered
1 teaspoon salt
3 whole allspice
3 whole peppercorns
1 cup water
1/2 pound fish fillets
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 cup milk
1 cup evaporated milk
Chopped dill and parsley
Boil potatoes, onion, and seasoning in 1 cup of water or enough to cover, until tender, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer and lay fish on top. Cover and simmer until fish flakes easily, about 10 minutes. Stir flour into melted butter until smooth. Add 1/4 cup milk and stir gently. Pour flour mixture and evaporated milk over fish and heat until slightly thickened. Pour into 2 serving bowls and garnish with dill and parsley.
