Dinner Entree: Stuffed Dorade
Another fish purchased at the Lobster Place in Chelsea Market. They have an excellent selection and their fish is fresh. They clean the whole fish and all I had to do was stuff it with fresh parsley, fresh dill, and lemon slices. Sprinkle both sides of the fish with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. In a pre-heated 425 degree oven cook the fish for about 20 to 25 minutes (or until the fish is the appropriate doneness for your liking). The Dorade has a white flesh with a lovely rich, meaty flavor.
I served this with simple steamed broccoli and sauteed spinach and garlic. For wine, this was paired with the Domaine de la Pepiere (Marc Olivier) 2005 Muscadet. I actually think the meal should have been paired with a weightier white - perhaps even a chardonnay.
