Day 7 of 365- White Fish over Spinach & Mushrooms

Father's Day Lunch :) - Invented by Kristy


White Fish over Spinach & Mushrooms

olive oil
1/2 onion chopped
1-2 TBS butter
1 package organic white mushrooms
white wine

3 cloves garlic
2 TBS honey
juice of one lemon
1/4 cup water
1 bunch fresh spinach

white fish ( frozen )
capers
lemon pepper
kosher salt

start to sauté the onions in the butter & olive oil
sprinkle salt on the onions
when they are starting to soften, move to side of pan
add the mushrooms sliced
don't crowd the mushrooms ( per Julia Child )
I usually keep the mushrooms single layered and turn when golden
when mushrooms are close to ready, add a couple TBS white wine
let simmer, add salt & pepper
set aside

in same pan, add garlic chopped with olive oil
add honey and lemon & let it caramelize a bit
this step is delicate as you don't want the honey to burn
add the water and cover and reduce heat
prepare fresh spinach
add to pan and quickly stir, cover, & check
the whole cycle should only be about a minute
you don't want the spinach to wilt too much
spoon on to the plate
add the mushroom mixture
put in a warm place like oven on low

in same pan prepare fish
cover in lemon juice salt, lemon pepper, & capers
cook on high for about 3 minutes each side
place on plate over the spinach & mushrooms

REMARKS: Amazing. I felt energized, and I really enjoyed the honey in the sauce for the spinach. It tasted incredible. Don't over cook the fish. That could be an easy mistake causing it to be too tough.
