Add a fin of Greek Blue into your kouzina palate!
PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOKING/BAKING TIME: about 50 minutes
SERVINGS: 4 to 6
1/3 cup olive oil
2 medium red onions, thinly sliced
1 cup diced celery
2 leeks, rinsed well and sliced
1/2 cup frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 plum tomatoes, diced
2/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 pounds firm white fish fillets (like cod, flounder, halibut, or haddock)
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 lemons, thinly sliced
1/3 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup finely ground almonds
1. Heat oven to 350°F.
2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, leek, and artichoke, reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
3. Add the tomatoes and parsley and cook until most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside.
4. Spoon just enough of the vegetable mixture into an ovenproof glass or ceramic casserole dish to cover the bottom. Season both sides of the fillets with oregano, salt, and pepper and place in the dish. Spoon the remaining vegetable mixture over the fillets and arrange lemon slices over the top of each.
5. Pour the wine and lemon juice over the fillets and into the dish. Sprinkle each fillet with ground almond. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
