Recipe: Quick & healthy catch of the day with mint peas
What I noticed about my dining experiences at Avec, Blackbird, and Girl and the Goat was their common use of fresh, seasonal ingredients. Whether it’s fish or vegetables, the dishes are reflective of the time of year.
The hubs and I have a friend who’s an avid fisher, and he gifted us this hybrid striped bass. There’s no better way to enjoy fresh seafood than to fire it up quickly on the pan with butter, salt, and cracked black pepper before giving it a squeeze of lemon prior to eating. With such a simple preparation, you need a simple side: enter English peas and mint, which evoke images of summer.
Here’s a simple and healthy recipe, perfect for your fresh catch of the day or whatever you may find at your local fish monger. I used freshly caught hybrid striped bass, commonly found in Texas waters, but you could just as well use any firm, flaky white fish.
