In bowl, combine ketchup, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce. Stir well and set aside.
In skillet, heat oil until very hot and stir in flour. Stir constantly until smooth and creamy. Cook until reddish brown. Then, stir in the onion, green onions, parsley, celery, garlic, green peppers, paprika, thyme, basil, salt, cayenne and black pepper. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add ketchup mixture and simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Beginning with one cup, add up to 2 cups of the fish stock, making a thick consistency. Let this simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat and cover pan.
