Sea Bass with Lemon and Herbs

Standard

Simple and tasty!

Ingredients:

4 (5 oz) skin on sea bass fillets

1/4 t. pepper

1 t. salt

1 lemon, cut into wedges

3 T. olive oil

2 T. white wine

2 T. butter

2 T. chopped parsley

Directions:

Score the skin of the fish with a sharp knife (this prevents the fish from curling).

Sprinkle the fillets with salt and pepper and let sit for about 20 minutes.

Heat a large pan. Add the lemons, cut sides down, and cook until lightly charred. Add the olive oil and place the fillets, skin side down, in the skillet. Cook, undisturbed, until the skin begins to brown and the fish is almost fully opaque.

When the fillets appear to be about 90% cooked, turn them over (the fillets should release easily from the pan). Finish cooking. Transfer the fillets and lemon to a place. Wipe the skillet clean.

Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the wine, some salt, and the butter. Mix continuously to emulsify. Spoon the sauce over the fillets and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with the lemon wedges.

Hashbrowns and Smoked Salmon

Standard

FullSizeRender

These were really tasty! The only thing is that they weren’t very pretty – it was hard to keep the hashbrowns all together when flipping them.

Ingredients:

1 pkg. frozen shredded potatoes

5 sliced green onions

2 or 3 large eggs, beaten

1 1/2 T. flour

4 oz. smoked salmon

Directions:

Combine 3 green onions, potatoes and eggs in a large bowl. Add the flour and some salt.

Heat some olive oil in a pan. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, portion out about 4 potato patties into the pan. Press them down with a spatula and cook them until the are browned on the bottom. CAREFULLY flip them over and cook the bottom. Cover them if they are still uncooked until soft. Plate them to a dish and keep them warm.

Continue making hashbrown patties until you are done with the potatoes.

Place a slice of smoked salmon on top of each hashbrown patty. Top with the remaining green onions.

Simple Seared Opah

Standard

FullSizeRender

Last week, I found fresh Opah from Hawaii at my local Costco. It was so beautiful and fresh that I had to have it! Opah is such a flavorful fish that I didn’t want to frilly it all up with sauces, etc. In my opinion, Opah is a lot more flavorful and moist than swordfish.

Ingredients:

1/2 lemon

1 lb. opah fillet

Salt & pepper

Olive oil

Directions:

Squeeze the lemon juice all over the fish. Salt & pepper both sides. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan.

Sear both sides of the fish for about 3-4 minutes per side (or until barely cooked through).
