Fish Foil with Veggies and Sun-dried Tomatoes

January 2nd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Makes 4 servings

INGREDIENTS

1 small traditional eggplant or 4 Japanese eggplants, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 whole head of garlic
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons fresh tarragon, chopped
2 medium zucchini, sliced into disks
10 sundried tomatoes
4 (6-ounce) pieces of wild caught salmon or arctic char, deboned and skin removed
1 lemon

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large bowl, combine eggplants with extra virgin olive oil, fresh thyme, and season with salt and pepper.

Spread eggplant in a single layer onto baking sheet. Cut heat of garlic in half (separating top from bottom of heat), and place garlic side down on same baking dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until eggplant is caramelized.

To prepare fish foil, lay out 4 sheets of foil on counter. In a small bowl, mix Dijon, tarragon, and a pinch of salt and pepper, and set aside. Layer the disks of zucchini and sun dried tomatoes (2 layers of each) about the surface area of the size of salmon or arctic char filet. Place fish on top of veggies and smear fish with Dijon mixture, and cover with 1 more later of zucchini and sundried tomatoes. Squeeze juice of lemon wedge over everything, and place used wedge right on top.

Close up individual foil packets, and place on a baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes while eggplant is still cooking.
This will give you a medium temperature on the fish. You can cook for another 5 to 10 if you prefer well done fish.

Once eggplant is cooked, remove from oven, and place eggplant and garlic cloves in a mixing bowl. Using a potato masher or fork, mash everything together. Once fish is finished, remove from foil, place on a plate with layers intact, and serve with mashed garlic eggplant.

INGREDIENTS

2 salmon steaks or 1 large filet
Salt/pepper
¼ c mustard
½ c butter at room temperature
¼ c chopped fresh dill
¼ c chopped shallots

Season the salmon with salt and pepper and grill until cooked as desired.

Gravlox

November 1st, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink

Gravlox is a cold, cured salmon with Scandinavian origins. Gravlox literally means “buried salmon.” It is made by covering the salmon with sugar, salt, black pepper and other seasonings including dill or other fresh herbs. Once it is seasoned, the fish is wrapped in plastic wrap and placed under heavy weights in the refrigerator for up to four days. After four days, the seasonings are removed and the salmon is served after it is sliced very thin. Gravlox is a delightful fresh tasting way to eat salmon.

For the dressing, mix 1 cup yogurt with ½ c chopped fresh mint and ½ c chopped parsley, the juice of 2 lemons, zest of 1 lemon, 2 T wholegrain mustard, 1 T honey and salt and pepper to taste.
