LION FISH ESCABECHE


Serves:

 4 Persons


ingridents:

      • ½ cup all-purpose flour
      • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
      • 4 3-ounce skin-on fish fillets, cut 1-inch thick
      • 2 tablespoons canola oil
      • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
      • ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
      • ½ red bell pepper, thinly sliced
      • ½ cup sherry vinegar
      • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
      • 2 teaspoons mustard seeds, toasted
      • 1 bay leaf
      • 1 fresh thyme sprig
      • 2 cups diced ripe avocado
      • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
      • Fresh cilantro leaves

directions:

 

      1. Combine the flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper on a plate. Dredge the fish fillets in the seasoned flour, tapping off the excess.
      2. Place a large skillet over high heat and coat with the vegetable oil. Lay the fish fillets in the pan and cook for 5 to 6 minutes. You want a good sear, so don’t move the fish around.
      3. Turn the fillets over and sear the other side for another 2 minutes until just about cooked through. Remove the fillets to an 8-by-8-inch baking dish.
      4. Scatter the carrot, onion and pepper on top of the fish and set aside.
      5. Place a small pot over medium heat and add the vinegar, ¼ cup of water, agave, mustard seed, bay leaf, thyme and remaining teaspoon of salt. When it reaches a boil, pour the marinade over the fish and cover with plastic wrap.
      6. Marinate at room temperature for at least 1 hour or up to overnight in the refrigerator. (If chilling, bring to room temperature before serving.)
      7. To serve, discard the thyme sprig and bay leaf; divide the fish among 4 small plates and spoon the vegetables and their marinade on top; scatter some chunks of avocado on top. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with cilantro leaves.
