bluefish before. It's.... not really the most popular tasting fish. However, my husband went on a fishing boat with his sales team from work. He came back with a big bag of blue fish in his hand, and a big grin on his face. "Honey, look at what we are going to have for dinner!! Think of all the Omega 3 we will be eating!!!"
Ugh,... What was I going to do to make this taste good. I was dreading it. But my negativity didn't dampen Randy's spirits. Instead, he decided that he was going to find a way to prepare them himself. That was fine with me! Because that way, I wont be getting the blame if it doesn't come out tasting so good.
I must tell you, the outcome exceeded my expectations! And all the ingredients he used were items we already had in the house. We had a fabulous dinner of bluefish, mashed potatoes, tossed salad and Italian bread. Sounds yummy, right? And I did feel especially healthy after eating it.
So here are the ingredients he used. (Note: Amounts vary depending on how many fish you were fortunate enough to catch.)
RANDY'S FINE FISH
bluefish (or any kind of fish for that matter) fillets
Equal parts of fresh squeezed lemon juice and red wine (you can use white wine if you prefer)
Chopped garlic (be generous)
dried thyme leaves
dried parsley flakes
salt and pepper
If your fillets are thick enough, remove the dark meat and discard. This will enhance the flavor. Spread bread crumbs on bottom of baking pan. Then dip fish fillets into a bowl of milk and coat. Lay fillets on top of bread crumbs in a single layer. Then spread more bread crumbs over the top of each piece of fish. Generously spoon Olive oil, wine, lemon juice, chopped garlic, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper evenly over the top of of each piece of fish.
bask in the health benefits of eating fresh, wild caught fish!
