Fish Cocktail I (P, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 12

3 to 4 lbs. white fleshed fish, such as red snapper, hake, halibut, whiting, etc.
2 large onions
2 medium cloves garlic, crushed
Touch of parsley (I haven't bothered)
Salt, white pepper
Ketchup (I used chili sauce; gives it more of a kick)
Mayonnaise (I use low-fat Miracle Whip)
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Dash of hot sauce

Gently simmer cut up pieces of fish (2" cubes) in water just to cover. Add chopped up onions, crushed garlic and seasonings. Stir gently and frequently. As soon as fish is cooked through and onions are soft, drain and cool.

Separately, mix 1/2 ketchup (chili sauce) and 1/2 mayo (miracle whip), making a pink sauce. Mix in very small amounts of Worcestershire and dash hot sauce. Taste for seasonings. Sauce should have a little tang.

When fish is cold, flake, mix in sauce and taste again.

Serving suggestions are to serve with triangles of toast, crackers or oyster crackers. Can also be served in fancy footed dessert bowl, over a leaf of lettuce garnished with fresh parsley or fresh dill.

I like to serve it in the large phyllo "cups" could also be served in those puff pastry shells.

Poster's Notes:
The fish does not have to be expensive for this dish; it will be cooked through, and by the time you add all the extras, the cheaper fishes taste just as good. I have used halibut and sea bass; halibut holds up better.
