Now, as usual, here's my take on it -- simplified and using ingredients I had on hand.
I bought tilapia since it was on sale. And look! The kids have been on a mission trip this week, so I'm cooking for two. WOW. Felt very strange. A hint of what's to come with empty nest.
Salmon or other fish
1 bunch of radishes (for 2 people)--washed VERY well (they're gritty) and quartered. Save greens and chop them.
1 lemon (for the zest)
garlic--couple of teaspoons or cloves, chopped
1 shallot chopped
1 nice sized zucchini (I forgot to photograph it)
First, the radish salad...
Cook garlic and shallot in olive oil until softened.
Add the radishes and greens and stir to sauté. Season with salt.
|I over-cooked mine a bit. Got a phone call.|
Now start on the fish...
Thinly slice the zucchini lengthwise. I tried using a knife, but they slices were too thick. Then I tried using a potato peeler, but the results were pretty disastrous, too thin. So I suggest you get out your mandolin slicer if you have one to get it just right (sounding like the three bears, isn't it?). You want the slices thin enough to wrap around the fish but not so thin they fall apart. (like this mess below)
Coat fish with olive oil and spread on a thin layer of dijon mustard.
Lay out the zucchini slices beside each other, and then lay one piece of fish across. Wrap zucchini around and place in pan coated with olive oil seam side down.
I had a good bit of zucchini leftover, so I just sliced it and cooked in the skillet beside the fish.
While the fish is cooking, check the radishes. They should be softened. Top with a bit of fresh lemon zest.
Flip fish when cooked halfway through. Don't over-cook it like I did! Serve the radish salad warm. I was rushing around trying to get to a meeting on time and had to leave my husband in charge of turning and finishing the fish. So the only photo I have is of my plate when I got home from the meeting (it was cold). I was too embarrassed to share it. :)
But it was delicious!
And just FYI, today is my wedding anniversary! Twenty-seven years! I took this Wednesday night when hubby indulged me by allowing me to get my fix of Menchie's yogurt.
