Sooooooo, I needed to cook some brain food. I mean what if she figures out, you know, that I'm not the shiniest penny? Between you and me, I think she already knows...
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Season two hearty, white fish filets with salt and a smidge of cayenne on each side. I used Tilapia filets. Sprinkle the filets liberally with soy sauce. If you have it, use the good stuff, the Tamari. Let them sit out for a few minutes and let all of the flavors mingle.
I would not recommend using anything other than cast iron for this recipe. Add two tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter to a cast iron skillet and heat over medium. Make sure the skillet is heat through before adding the fish. Carefully add the fish and cook for 4 minutes.
Carefully turn the filets and cook on the other side for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat momentarily.
Sprinkler a 1/4 cup white wine over the filets and add the following to each: A few small pats of butter, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 2 tablespoons of finely chopped chives, 2 teaspoons of capers, 1 tablespoon of sliced Kalamata olives.
Finish off with 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Place the skillet in the oven for 10 minutes on the middle rack and then run the skillet under the broiler until the fish is golden brown.
This and a nice salad, a glass of wine, This was eyes roll in the back of your head good!
Just one more food porn shot. I have to make this again and soon!
