Makes 4 Servings

Ingredients:

Nonstick cooking spray

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/4 cup minced shallots

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups (6 – 8 oz.) sliced shitake mushrooms

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 cup chopped California walnuts

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

4 arctic char fillets, about 4 ounces each (or salmon fillets if arctic char is not available)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.  Coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add shallots and garlic and cook 1 minute.  Add mushrooms and cook about 5 minutes, until they have softened and released some of their liquid.  Add thyme and cook about 1 minute longer, until the thyme is fragrant.  Remove from heat and stir in walnuts and parsley.

3. Arrange the artic char on the prepared baking sheet and season the fillets with salt and pepper.  Spoon the mushroom mixture evenly over fish fillets and press it down, to make a thick mushroom covering, or crust.  Roast 10 to 15 minutes, until the fish is cooked through and fork-tender.

  1. Hmm, I’ve never been a big fish person, but everyone always stresses how good salmon and other fishes are for you. Maybe I’d try this if it doesn’t taste too fishy.

  2. If salmon or arctic char are too ‘fishy’ tasting for you, try Ahi tuna — it’s an excellent fish with all (and more) of the benefits of those but has a very mild taste and goes with anything… it’s incredible raw as well, as long as you get sushi grade.
