| Fish with leeks might be easy, but it's also very tasty. Try it with your favorite firm, mild, white fish: such as orange roughy, halibut, escolar tuna, or Chilian sea bass. (However, nutty, flavorful, Chilian sea bass is said to be endangered, and it's very expensive anymore, so you may want to avoid it and hope, as we do, that its numbers come back and we can enjoy it again someday.) |

Fish, Leeks And Green Onion
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 large leek, sliced
4-5 large garlic cloves, sliced thinly
10 green onions, halved lengthwise, cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces
1 cup homemade fish stock (link) or bottled clam juice
4 orange roughy, sea bass, escolar (white tuna), haddock or halibut fillets. Any firm, white-fleshed fish will be great if it is fresh.
Chopped fresh Italian parsley
Heat 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat.
Add leek and garlic and sauté for 3 minutes.
Stir in green onions and stock.
Boil until the liquid is reduced to glaze, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes.
Salt and pepper to taste. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until just cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.
Remove the fish to plates.
Add onion mixture to cooking pan and heat briefly, then Spoon this mixture over and enjoy.
Sprinkle with Italian parsley and serve.
A flavorful Italian rice pilaf looks and tastes great beside this recipe.
Okay, how easy was that? Bet you'll like it.
Buon appetito always!
