White Fish Florentine


white fish in pasta

The adjective "Florentine" refers to a person or thing from the Italian city of Florence, but today, it's most commonly used to mean a dish that features spinach.

A dish prepared à la Florentine typically features a main ingredient such as eggs, poultry, or fish, served on a bed of steamed or sautéed spinach.

This recipe also calls for pancetta (dry, cured pork belly), but you can certainly substitute bacon (dry, cold-smoked pork belly) or our wild salmon "bacon".

White Fish Florentine
Prep time 10 minutes; Cook time 15 minutes
Serves 4

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large, deep fry pan or stockpot over medium heat. Stir in garlic and pancetta and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Remove pancetta from pan; hold aside.
  2. Brush both sides of cod fillets with remaining oil. Place fillets in pan and cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.
  3. Turn fillets over and sprinkle with lemon pepper. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 2 to 5 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. Remove fillets to platter; keep warm.
  4. Add water, spinach and pancetta to pot; cover and cook a few minutes, just until spinach is wilted. Stir to blend flavors and heat through.
  5. To serve, portion about 1/2 cup spinach blend onto each plate. Top with a seafood fillet and 1/2 tablespoon tapenade or 1 tablespoon olives.
