Sauteed Sea Bass on Bruschetta

By tommy123400

  • two 28-cans whole tomatoes, drained, seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch dice

  • 3/4 cup loosely packed fresh coriander sprigs, washed well, spun dry, and chopped

  • 3 tablespoons minced shallots

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

  • 4 diagonal 1/4-inch-thick slices fat-free French or Italian bread (about 4 ounces total), toasted lightly

  • four 4-ounce sea bass, flounder, or sole fillets

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

  1. In a bowl stir together tomatoes, coriander, shallots, zest, lemon juice, vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Drain mixture in a sieve set over a bowl 10 minutes, reserving liquid, and divide among toasts, spreading to cover.

  2. Season fish with salt and pepper and dredge in flour to coat, shaking off excess. In a large non-stick skillet heat butter over moderately high heat until foam subsides and cook fish 3 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through. Arrange 1 fillet over each bruschetta and keep warm. Add reserved tomato liquid and orange juice to skillet and boil until reduced to about 1/4 cup. Pour sauce over fish.
