When I figured out how far I was in each chapter, I was thrilled to see that I was over 10% in almost every chapter and as high as 35% in some chapters. Unfortunately, there were some really low chapters and "fish" was definitely one of those. I bought some sea bass on sale and thought that Fish baked in a covered dish (p. 399) would be a great use of it.
I combined butter, black pepper, and a bit of nutmeg. I like when recipes start with all this butter!
I then spread the butter on the fish, which wasn't as easy as it sounds. The butter did NOT want to spread! I popped the lid on my Le Crueset and put it in the oven.
While the fish was cooking, I melted some butter in a small saucepan and added capers, parsley (dried), chives (freeze-dried), lemon juice, and some salt and pepper:
When the fish was done I poured the butter mixture over the top:
This was SOOOOOO good. Really easy and absolutely delicious. The fish was flaky and perfectly cooked and the briny capers cut through the super buttery taste perfectly. I think fish and capers go together so well! I like recipes where you essentially throw everything in a pot and call it a day so this recipe was right up my alley.
