Fancy Fried Bass


1½ lbs. smallmouth bass fillets
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
½ cup flour
Butter or margarine
1 cup or more sliced fresh mushrooms
¼ cup green onions
2 Tbsp. dry white wine

Place the flour on a plate. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper, then dredge lightly in flour. Melt about 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine over medium heat. Fry the fillets until golden brown on each side and remove to a plate, keeping them warm. If necessary add more butter or margarine to the skillet and add mushrooms and green onions. Cook them for about 3 minutes then stir in the wine and lemon juice. Pour this mixture over the fish and serve.
