English Parsley Sauce
Yes, it's old-fashioned nursery food, but I sometimes think that things like this need a revival. I love it with baked cod cutlets and creamy mashed potatoes, and it's also excellent with gammon, but most especially I love it with Salmon Fishcakes (See related recipe below).
Makes about 15 fl oz (425 ml)

Place the milk and the next five ingredients in a small pan, bring everything slowly up to simmering point, then pour the mixture into a bowl and leave aside to get completely cold.
When you're ready to make the sauce, strain the milk back into the pan, discard the flavourings, then add the flour and butter and bring everything gradually up to simmering point, whisking continuously with a balloon whisk until the sauce has thickened and is smooth and glossy. Then turn the heat down to its lowest possible setting and let the sauce cook gently for 5 minutes, stirring from time to time.
To serve the sauce, add the chopped parsley, cream and lemon juice, taste and season, then serve in a warm jug.

The thing to remember here is that good-quality tinned salmon makes better fishcakes than fresh, so don't be tempted to cook some salmon just for this.
One of Delia's most popular salmon recipes - and it's easy to see why. The fish cooks to moist perfection in the oven while you rustle up a sublime creme fraiche and avocado sauce. A brilliant party recipe.
