   fish. serve over rice. Source: Chef Michael Richard of
   Cafe Vermilionville, Lafayette, LA. In Cajun land,
   this is pronounced Coo-bee-yon. NOTE-My mother-in-law
   used to add a touch of Creole mustard to her sauce. It
   gave it a good tangy flavor. Also she would put the
   filets in a baking dish, pour the sauce over and bake
   in the oven, so the fish would not fall apart.
   Contrary to what Chef Richard says, this dish is
   customarily served with mashed potatoes in my neck of
   the woods.
