Yukon Gold Potato Encrusted Lionfish

Lionfish is a white fish - flaky, mild, and buttery. It has a brilliant, almost china-like white flesh to it. More importantly, it is a sustainable fish with almost an unlimited supply. Here it is served with Braised Purple Cabbage, Local Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes, and Pan Au Jus. Recipe by Chef Drew Hedlund of Fleet Landing Restaurant & Bar and photo by Sara Nielsen.

  • Braised purple cabbage (recipe follows)
  • 1 small container mixed heirloom tomatoes

Instructions

Lionfish Fillet

 

Pre-heat oven to 350°.

Salt and pepper the lionfish fillet and then shingle sliced potatoes on top to cover the entire fillet.

Pan sear potato side down in a sauté pan just long enough to get a crust to form, about 45 seconds to 1 minute.

Flip the fish over and place in the pre-heated oven to finish cooking, this should take roughly 7–8 minutes depending on size of fillet.

Remove from pan and place on top of braised cabbage. Add the heirloom tomatoes to the already hot sauté pan and deglaze with white wine and serve along side of the fish with the au jus.
