By far the best fish dish I’ve made so far! This amazing sauce was used on pasta but thought it would be amazing on fish. I like anything lemony so combining it with fresh mint just took it to a whole new level!
Whitefish with Mint Salmoriglio Sauce
1 lb whitefish of your choice (I used Sole)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 large lemons)
2 lemons, zested
3 cloves garlic, smashed or finely minced
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes until the fish is cooked through.
In a small saucepan, bring the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, and garlic to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the mint and parsley.
Once fish is done cooking, take it out of the oven, pour the sauce over the fish and let it marinate in the sauce for 2-3 minutes before serving.
