|Fabulous fresh fish and herb salad
|3 minutes a side in olive oil is all it takes!|
This week’s French Fridays with Dorie challenge is for Swordfish with Frilly Herb Salad. Although Swordfish is one of our favorite types of fish, we had this beautiful Blue Fin Tuna that I purchased from Fresh Fish Fanatics right off their boat in the Channel Islands Harbor. Since Tuna, like Swordfish, is a nice steak-like fish, it worked perfectly with this seasoning. The fish is marinated in a mixture of lemon zest, lemon juice, capers, caper juice, olive oil, and onions which is just delicious. The marinade is then cooked and served over the fish. We loved the flavor combination and think this would work really well en papillote with far less mess to clean up.
|Fresh herbs from our garden: Dill; Tarragon; Flat Leaf Parsley; Lemon Thyme; Oregano; and Chives.|
The Frilly Herb Salad called for 2 cups of Flat Leaf Parsley and an assortment of fresh herbs tossed with a touch of lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. However, we didn’t have that much in our garden and I couldn’t find any at the market, so I added in a little baby spring greens. Frankly, I would have preferred more lettuce and less parsley, but I did like the mix of herbs with the fish. The lemon and olive oil was a perfect summer dressing.
All in all, a wonderfully refreshing summer meal.
