This is one of the easiest weeknight dinners I have ever made, and one of the tastiest. I try to put seafood on the table about once or twice a week, because hubby and I love it and it’s generally very good for you. But it can be hard to think of creative ways to cook fish without breading it, and it’s tricky to get it to cook through without drying out. One thing that I love to do is to bake fish with veggies on top of it. The veggies keep the fish moist and impart a little of their flavor, and for all the health and flavor benefits they bring, these recipes couldn’t be easier.
Baked Halibut and Mushrooms
2 halibut fillets (or any firm white fish)
extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper (or truffle pepper, optional)
1 package mushrooms, sliced (cremini are nice, but button will work too)
fresh thyme leaves (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a small baking dish, drizzle olive oil over the fish and season with salt and pepper (or truffle pepper – mmmmm). Cover with mushrooms and drizzle a bit more olive oil over the mushrooms.
- Bake 25-30 minutes, until fish is firm and mushrooms are done.
- Serve with mushrooms still atop fillets. If desired, sprinkle fresh thyme over cooked fillets.
Yield: Serves 2.
