I wasn’t all that hungry (normally I could eat a pound of cheese just waiting for dinner to cook) so I decided on a seafood dinner. When I eat fish for dinner, I very rarely feel stuffed.
Below is my savory seafood dinner that can be applied to any ‘steak –like’ fish (i.e. salmon, wahoo, mahi mahi, tilapia)
Savory Seafood in a White Wine Sauce
Cook time: 15 minutes
Prep time: 5 minutes
3 slices of bacon
2 small tomatoes diced
4 cloves of garlic diced
½ red onion diced
¼ cup of dry white wine (Sav Blanc or chardonnay)
2 filets of fish (preferably 4 oz. pieces)
Add bacon to a hot skillet and cook on medium heat. (Do not add oil or butter to the pan. The bacon will create its own grease.) Cook bacon until it is very slightly crispy on either-side and remove from the pan. While cooking the bacon, add the fish to the grill of about 400 degrees.
Add garlic and onion to the pan until it cooks to be translucent. Once soft, add tomatoes and sautee for 2 minutes. Then add white wine, and bring the contents to a slow boil. Once the sauce is at a slow boil add back the bacon (chopped) and check on the fish to ensure doneness. (Each side should cook 5-8 minutes and be flaky with a fork).
Remove the fish from the grill. Top the fish filet with the tomato, bacon and white wine sauce. Serve hot and enjoy!
This meal is super easy and great for those on a budget. Frozen salmon, tilapia or other fish are always a great option if the fish at the counter is more expensive.
