Healthy Fish Recipes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons hot paprika
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
2 small garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon chopped thyme, preferably lemon thyme
1 teaspoon chopped caraway seeds
1 stick plus 4 tablespoons (6 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
Six 6-ounce pompano or Spanish mackerel fillets, with skin
Freshly ground pepper
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 500°. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet. Add the tomatoes and cook over moderately high heat for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to moderate and cook, stirring and mashing the tomatoes with a fork until a thick puree forms, about 15 minutes. Add the hot and sweet paprikas and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Scrape the tomato puree into a bowl and let cool. Stir in the garlic, thyme and caraway seeds. Fold in the butter and season with salt.
Lightly oil a large, rimmed baking sheet and arrange the pompano fillets on it, skin side down. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the tomato butter over the fillets, leaving a 1/2-inch border all around. Roast the fish in the top third of the oven for 6 minutes, or until golden brown and just cooked through. Transfer the fillets to plates and serve.
