  • --24 oz halibut (or other white fish. Halibut is pretty hearty, so adjust cooking time as necessary)
  • --2 T flour (I used Pamela's)
  • --1 T white sugar
  • --1/4 cup butter, melted
  • --1/3 cup white wine (or chicken broth)
  • --2/3 cup fat free milk
  • --juice from 1 lemon
  • --1 t salt
  • --1 t pepper


  1. Microwave butter in a glass bowl, and whisk in the flour. In a separate bowl, combine the milk and the white wine. Slowly add the flour mixture to the milk and wine, stirring the whole time. Squeeze in the lemon. If you dump the cold milk and wine into the flour mixture too quickly, the flour and butter will separate again, and the butter will harden and create weird gloppy lumps that will float to the surface.

  2. Ask me how I know this…

  3. Add the sugar to the sauce mixture. Put the fish (mine was frozen solid) in your crockpot, and cover with the milk and wine liquid. Lay the broccolini on top. Cover and cook on high for about 2 hours, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork
