My bridal shower was 3 years ago, today! Each of the guests at my bridal shower brought me a recipe on a recipe card which were all placed into my “recipe box”. I have only tried a handful of the recipes over the past 3 years, but I hope to one day get through them all. So here I begin my recipe box adventure…
This recipe was written by my piano teacher, Arina. Her recipe was originally for fillet of sole in white wine, but I adapted it slightly based on what I had on hand. You could use any type of fish fillet, and you can easily substitute the wine for juice, or water. However, I do believe using wine provides the most flavour!
BASA FILLET IN ROSÉ WINE
Serves: 2 people
- 2 basa fillets (~ 6oz. each)
- 1/2 cup rosé wine
- 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
- salt, pepper, basil to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 F. If using a stone pan, place it in the oven to preheat.
- Combine wine, parsley, garlic, juice, and spices in a small pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Rinse fillets, dry with paper towels, and sprinkle with lemon juice.
- Arrange the fillets on the pan and pour wine mixture over them.
- Cover with aluminum foil and poach in the oven for 20 minutes.
- Keep fillets warm until ready to serve. Sprinkle with more chopped parsley.
We had ours with a simple risotto, thinly sliced potatoes, avocado, green beans, and a balsamic salad. A simple, healthy, and delicious meal for 2!
