Sablefish with Sun-dried Tomato Tapenade

Jean Allsopp
Yield Makes 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 (6-ounce) boneless sablefish, cod, or halibut fillets
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

How to Make It

  1. Combine sun-dried tomatoes and next 5 ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until finely minced. Set aside.

  2. Place fillets on a lightly greased baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. Broil fillets 5 inches from heat 7 to 10 minutes or until opaque. Top with tapenade, and serve immediately.

  4. Note: Rich, velvety sablefish, also known as butterfish or black cod, can be difficult to find in local markets, so buy it when you see a fresh supply. If unavailable, substitute Pacific halibut, cod, wahoo, or another firm white fish.

  5. Wine note: "A French Vouvray or a Pinot Noir," says Eric Fullagar, at Freeport Cheese & Wine in Maine. "Another choice would be a dry French rosé. Most people are perplexed by rosé, but it's food-friendly."
