Mustard-Roasted Fish

Fish is always on my menu. I love its lightness and healthy components, and the fact that it usually cooks so fast! I’m forever on the lookout for new recipes, and the Foodnetwork is a bottomless fountain of great ideas. I found this one online, and the recipe is originated by the great Ina Garten. It is in part made with Creme Fraîche, which (at least in my current neighborhood) is impossible to find. So this particular recipe is with an alternative way to make your own creme fraîche, which is not a bad thing to be able to recreate. This dish is light and delicious, I hope you enjoy it!

What you’ll need:

  • 4 (8 oz) filets of Red Snapper
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 oz of creme fraîche (or: 1 cup of heavy cream and 1/2 cup sour cream, combine and let sit overnight, covered. Use 8 oz of this mix)
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tbsp minced shallots
  • 2 tbsp drained capers

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Combine the creme fraîche, both mustards, shallots, capers, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp black pepper in a small bowl.

Place fish filets in an oven proof baking dish. Sprinkle generously with salt and black pepper.

Spoon the sauce evenly over the fish filets, making sure the fish is completely covered. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Be sure not to overcook!

Serve hot with extra sauce spooned over the fish with rice or mashed potatoes.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
