Wild Rockfish with Shiitake Mushrooms, Garlic, Lemon and Capers Recipe:
8 ounce Wild Rockfish fillet
1 tablespoon fresh black pepper
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Oil
4 tablespoons minced garlic from jar
2 tablespoons capers
1 lemon, halved
Variety of colorful fresh thickly chopped vegetables for roasting. I used yellow squash, Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower
1 tablespoon Cumin
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine roasting vegetables with one tablespoon of oil and place on baking sheet. Sprinkle with cumin and cook for 30 minutes.
Heat pan to Medium-High, add oil and filet, skin side up. Cook for several minutes checking for brownness, then flip.
Add pepper, garlic, capers, and half the juice of a squeezed lemon. Add shiitake mushrooms.
Cook for several more minutes until skin is crispy, then reduce heat to low, cover and cook until fish is steamed translucent.
Hints: Toss in some extra minced garlic on the roasting vegetables for the final 10 minutes. As for the heat, don’t be afraid to use a high-medium setting for the fish to sear in the flavor and crisp up the skin!
