I love the ease of preparing a fish medley -- a fresh, wild-caught fillet cut into serving pieces and combined with fresh spinach, pitted olives, tomato, shredded cheese and other ingredients.
You pop the pan into a preheated 400-degree oven and in 15 minutes or less, dinner is served.
The Fish Dock, owned and operated by Icelanders, is where I first encountered and purchased a medley, but because the seafood market is about 10 miles away, I usually make my own version at home.
See the photos below for how to assemble a medley:
|I added thin slices of a small eggplant from my garden and brushed them with extra-virgin olive oil.|
|The finished dish. The high heat toasted the herbs, but the haddock remained moist and flaked beautifully.|
|The next day, I enjoyed some of the leftovers over organic brown rice I had prepared in a rice cooker with organic chicken stock, organic diced tomatoes and organic beans.|
