  Unsalted butter/Unsalted margarine 4 Teaspoon
  Green onions/Shallots 2 , minced to make 1/4 cup
  Fresh mushrooms 8 Ounce, sliced to make 3 cups
  White wine/Fish stock 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  All purpose flour 3 Tablespoon
  1% low fat milk 1 1⁄8 Cup (18 tbs)
  Paprika 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon (Or According To Taste)
  Black pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon (Or According To Taste)
  Hot pepper sauce 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Large shrimp 8 Ounce, thawed if frozen, peeled and deveined with tails (About 10 In Number)
  Pompano fillets/Other white fish fillets 12 Ounce, skinned (2 Pieces, 6 Ounce Each)
  Chives sprig 8 (About 6 Inches Long)

1. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 2 teaspoons of the butter over moderate heat. Add the shallots and saute for 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in the mushrooms and wine; saute 4 minutes more or until only 3 tablespoons of liquid remain.
2. Add the flour and cook until bubbly, then whisk in 1 cup of the milk, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of milk, the hot pepper sauce, and shrimp and cook, uncovered, 3 minutes more or just until the shrimp turns opaque; remove from the heat.
3. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Grease two 12-x 18-mch pieces of parchment paper or aluminum foil with the remaining 2 teaspoons of butter. Place one fillet parallel to the narrow edge of each piece of foil about 3 inches from the edge; top with 1/2 of the sauce and the shrimp, and 4 chives.
4. Bring the foil over each fillet, then seal the edges tightly and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until puffed. Place a packet on each plate, cut a "X" slit, and carefully open, standing away from the steam. Serve with Long Island Potatoes.
