salt and pepper to taste

1 lb. walleye cut into 1-inch pieces

juice of 1/2 lemon

2 tbsp. parsley, finely chopped

€¢ Place the butter and bacon in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the bacon starts to brown.

€¢ Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic, thyme, and potatoes and cook covered, stirring often, for about 10 minutes.

€¢ Add the flour and cook 2 to 3 more minutes. Add the chicken stock, milk, cream, wine, Tabasco, salt and pepper.
