Pan Grilled Fresh Sable Fish
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Sable fish is also known as butterfish or black cod. This makes a nice buffet presentation as long as it does not "stand around" for more than 1 hour. Make the onion sauce, pan-grill the fish. Spread lots of baby green onto a large platter, arrange fish pieces and dollop with the sauce and nuts. Other fish fillets or steaks could be used, as well.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
In large saute pan, heat the olive oil and add the onion slices. Cook over medium heat about 20-30 minutes until onions are limp and slightly browned. Add vinegar or juice, raisins, zests and juices, salt and pepper. Stir well and set aside. Sprinkle the fish pieces with flour, salt, pepper and paprika. In another heavy bottomed saute pan or grill pan, heat the butter or oil. Add fish and cook 2-3 minutes on first side and then turn and cook another 1-3 minutes on the second side, or until fish is done. Do not overcook! Arrange the greens on a platter, place fish over greens, and dollop with the onion mixture. Garnish with almonds.
