How to make it

  • BROTH-
  • Heat a tsp of regular olive oil in a small sauce pan.
  • Add shallot and cook on medium heat until soft and golden.
  • Add chicken broth, squeeze lemon juice right into pan and grate some zest in.
  • Simmer until heated through.
  • Cover and leave on back burner.
  • PEAS-
  • In a food processor...add peas, garlic clove(whole), salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pulse until roughly mixed.
  • Then, with processor running, slowly add extra virgin olive oil until smooth.
  • Transfer mixture to bowl and stir in cheese.
  • Set aside.
  • FISH-
  • Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil in a saute pan and while it is heating, drizzle oil and sprinkle salt and pepper on one side of the fish.
  • Place the fish, seasoned side down, in the hot pan and season the other side of fish while it is in the pan.
  • Let fish cook for about 5 minutes on each side until it develops a nice brown crispy crust on the outside and is still tender inside.
  • Add about 1 ladle full of broth into each of two shallow bowls.
  • Place large dollop (about 1/4 of mixture) of pea puree in a mound in center of broth, making a bed for the fish.
  • Gently but firmly place fish on each mound with a pair of tongs.
  • Serve immediately with a spoon!
  • *you can garnish with extra lemon zest if you like.
  • I have broth and peas left over, it's really enough for four...just make more fish!

    well- everyone i have fed it to freaks out from the light elegant deliciousness...

    and i am making it again tonight!...

    sorry it wasn't your taste missamberlee...


    *could have been that tarragon dear- that's not exactly italian now..LOL...
    you should have just done it without mint..
    if you'll notice in the ACTUAL ABOVE RECIPE..
    it doesn't call for any mint...
    **what WERE you thinking?!?!?...


    *oh- and i ADDED that clove of garlic as well...
    that's my variation...

    I saw this show the other day! It looked very good. However not having any mint on hand, I used tarragon.

    WHAT WAS I THINKING?!? Im feeding it to the chickens tomorrow.
