As promised, I am posting some prepared meals using ingredients purchased at the Saturday AM farmers market. For our Monday night meal we made the following dish:
Pan Seared Filet of John Dory on a bed of couscous with sauteed spinach. The square dish is a buffalo mozzarella, basil, and grape tomato salad served warm. To accompany, there was a glass of Melville Chardonnay.
We got the fish, lemon, basil, and tomato at the Farmers Market. Everything was really tasty and easily made. The fish was simply seasoned with olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper. Then it was pan sauteed/seared on the frying pan heated with additional olive oil. Just cook about 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve immediately. For the salad, I put the tomatoes into a small pot with olive oil and sauteed them until they were soft. Cut the small balls of buffalo mozzarella in half and cut up the basil into small pieces. Place the tomato, basil and mozzarella into individual bowls, drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper. Cook the couscous according to package directions.
