Creole of Halibut (Baked)

Cook for 20 minutes two cups of tomatoes, one cup water, two slices onions, five cloves and one-half tablespoon sugar.
Melt three tablespoons of butter, add three tablespoons flour and stir until well blended. Then add to the tomato sauce or mixture, season with salt and pepper and cook 10 minutes. Force this through a strainer. Wipe a two pound piece of halibut, put into a buttered baking pan and pour around one-half of sauce; bake 40 minutes, basting every 10 minutes. Remove to a hot platter, pour around the remaining sauce and garnish with parsley.
