Fish Recipe of the Week
Since the Dorado have started to show up again I have been pulling out old recipes from last year, always looking for something just a little different. Problem is, most of the time the only thing different is the sauce! I mean, come on, you can bake, broil, grill, poach, smoke and fry. Oh, also raw. That’s 7 ways. Add sauce and things get a bit different.
Also, as we get older we need to eat healthier. While trying to keep things tasty we also try to use low cholesterol ingredients when possible. Fish is good for you!!! Keep everything else good for you too!
This weeks recipe is mostly about the sauce. You need the following:
½ cup white wine
½ cup low cholesterol sour cream
3 tablespoons butter wanna-be stuff (trying for healthy here!)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
4 green onions (chives, fresh!)
1 teaspoon of really good hot sauce
¼ cup of mustard (the course grained is the best)
Melt the butter in a sauce pan with the garlic and chives, cook on medium for a few minutes until
they get soft.
Add the white wine, reduce until the wine is almost gone, reduce heat to simmer.
Add the sour cream, bring to a simmer stirring constantly until it thickens just a bit.
Add mustard and hot sauce, stir in and mix well, remove from the heat and keep warm.
For the fish:
4 or 6 nice 6-8 ounce fillets of Dorado (you can use any fish, but dorado is great!)
juice of one lime (one of those big sweet, seedless ones from our tree, or use a few small ones)
2 tablespoons of butter wanna-be
Melt the butter, whisk in the lime juice, baste the fillets, dust with salt and pepper and put on the grill for about 4 minutes a side. Or, put in the broiler for the same amount of time.
Place on a warm plate, spoon some sauce on top,
Great with some hot rice and a green salad!
