Garden-Style Fish with Pecan Pilaf

Total Time - 15 minutes / Makes 4 Servings

Cooking Sequence

  • Prepare fish through step 2; microwave pecans for rice - 10 minutes
  • Complete fish, complete rice and serve - 5 minutes

Garden-Style Catfish With Pecan Pilaf

Garden-Style Fish

2 teaspoons lemon pepper
1 1/2 pounds fish fillets (catfish, cod, or haddock; thawed, if needed)
2 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 cup pre-diced fresh red onions
1/4 cup pre-diced fresh tomatoes
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/3 cup white wine
1 lime (for juice)

  1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Always check fish carefully and remove any bones. Lay fish, skin side down, over an inverted bowl; the curve lifts the bones. Use fingertips to feel for bones that may not be visible. Sprinkle lemon pepper on both sides of fish (wash hands). Place 1 tablespoon of the butter in pan; swirl to coat. Add onions, tomatoes, and garlic; cover and cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until onions are tender.
  2. Move vegetables to outside edge of pan. Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to center of pan. Add fish over the butter (wash hands); cover and cook 3–5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 145°F (or flesh is opaque and separates easily with a fork). Cook time may vary depending on the thickness of the fish.
  3. Remove fish from pan; cover to keep warm. Add wine to pan. Cook 2–3 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half; serve vegetable mixture over fish.
  4. Squeeze juice of lime over top; serve.

Aprons Advice

The wine in this recipe may be replaced with vegetable stock or chicken stock mixed with a teaspoon of vinegar. The vinegar adds flavor and a bit of acidity to perk up the sauce.
