This recipe is from a cookbook titled Casserole Cook Book by Better Homes & Gardens, printed in 1961. Easy recipe that comes together rather quickly, a basic dish of a homemade white sauce and steamed fish. Add a couple of sides and you have a delicious meal. This recipe was written originally using salt cod, I have changed the recipe to reflect the use of any whitefish, and the unsalted variety of cod as well.
