It was a Feast of the One Fish. While I really would like do a Feast of the Seven Fish on Christmas Eve, it would have been crazy for us to do it for the four of us (Opa is visiting). We would have been eating fish for weeks afterwards and fish really doesn’t last.
So we had Tilapia on a bed of mushrooms. It was a Dutch recipe (Gearoofge Tongfilets op een bedje van Champignons) that called for Sole, but we used Tilapia since it was readily available.
It was a very simple recipe: fish, butter, salt, lemon juice, onion, parsley, and white wine. Done in 30 minutes. Sauté onion and mushrooms in butter. Rub salt and lemon juice on fish. Butter a baking dish. Place fish on the bed of mushrooms, add a glass of wine and parsley then pop in a 350F oven for 20 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes.
It is one of those recipes where you don’t really measure the ingredients you just do what feels right. And it turns out wonderful.
