I prefer my fish raw………as in sashimi or sushi style. But I also love fish that is cooked. I love to fish…I love to buy fish…..I love when friends who fish, give me fish. Fish is good. There are so many ways to prepare fish. OH!! I recently saw an article on 60 Minutes about salmon farms. Oh my gosh, did you see it? Uhhh, it was a little concerning. Especially since salmon is a favorite fish of mine. Ewwwww, I think I should not have watched that show. Ignorance is bliss, as they say! If you can find it on line, you may want to watch it! Anyway, I got off my subject a bit. 🙂 Anyway, as much as I love beef, which is most of the time, sometimes I really want fish. My favorite is salmon…or no…wait…maybe it’s yellowtail, or maybe even sea bass….nope, its halibut…well but then there is bluefin….but ahhhh, let’s not forget albacore! I love albacore. But I like that one served raw…oh yes, with some wasabi and soy sauce. M-m-m-m-. Oh gosh, too many fish in the sea, I tell ya!
I used tilapia here in this recipe, but you can use any type of fish. A milder fish is good for this dish, because it absorbs all the juices from the tomatoes, garlic, lemon, and butter. Serve it with some fluffy wild rice and you will want to eat the whole pan.
Fish Saute with tomatoes
Cherry or grape tomatoes
2 garlic cloves
Juice of 1 lemon
Half of a stick of butter
Couple of tablespoons of olive oil
Couple splashes of soy sauce
Couple snips of chives (if you have them. I use them in everything)
Fish of your choice (this is good with any fish)
In a large skillet, melt your butter over a medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic and tomatoes. Toss around until your tomatoes start bursting. I love when they do that! Remove the tomatoes and set aside. you should still have some juices in your skillet. If not, add a little more butter and oil. Add the lemon juice and soy sauce. Slap your fish into the skillet and just before done (nice and flaky), put the tomatoes back in. Once the fish is cooked through, remove everything and serve with rice, angel hair pasta, veggies….whatever you want!
