  • Remove 1 tablespoon milk and mix with cornstarch to a smooth paste; mix back into remaining milk. (Adding dry cornstarch directly to the cup of milk would make it difficult to mix in.) Crumble blue cheese into milk.
  • In a small pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add milk mixture and whisk until mixture bubbles and is thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Poach fillets on the stovetop (or in microwave), put 1 cup white wine, water, or a mixture in a pan (or microwaveable dish). Add fillets in a single layer, salt and pepper lightly. Cover and simmer until fish is opaque and flakes when tested with a fork, about 5 minutes. (Or microwave on high, covered with a piece of waxed paper or plastic wrap until done, about 5 minutes.)
  • Remove fillets carefully to a platter or individual plates. Spoon sauce over and dust with paprika. Serve at once.
