Instructions

  1. In a saucepan, crumble the fish bouillon and pour in as much water as will cover the fish. Bring the water to a boil.
  2. Cut the fish into smaller pieces and place them in the water. Cook over low heat with the lid on for about 3 minutes. Remove the fish with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan. Add cream and cream cheese. Bring to a boil while stirring continuously, then lower the heat. Let simmer for a few minutes, until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in finely chopped parsley and chopped hard-boiled eggs. Stir gently to combine.
  4. Fry sugar snaps for a few minutes in butter and serve together with the fish and egg sauce.

Tip!

*If you don't have bouillon, you can use lightly salted water and a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice in Step 1.
