Brady Street Fish with Seasoned Pasta

Any firm whitefish or fresh caught panfish will work well in this flavorful Summer meal. Remember to have your pan good and hot when you add the fish - this will help the breadcrumbs stick and keep the fish from absorbing too much oil.

  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless fish fillets
  • 1/2 Cup fine bread crumbs (crumb stale bread in a blender or food processor)
  • 2-3 TB. olive oil, (about)
  • 1 TB. red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup cherry tomatoes, quartered (8-12)
  • 2-3 Cups cooked pasta
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 TB. Parmesan cheese, finely shredded
  • BLACK PEPPER, freshly ground to taste

Wash and remove skin from fillets, shake off excess water, sprinkle with LEMON PEPPER SEASONING. Mix bread crumbs and BRADY STREET CHEESE SPRINKLE on a rimmed dinner plate, press breading onto both sides of fish. Heat a heavy-duty skillet (sauté pan) until hot, add 2 TB. olive oil, heat until hot but not smoking. Carefully place fish fillets in pan (2 batches may be necessary, don't crowd) and cook over medium-high heat for about three minutes (less for very thin panfish). Reach carefully under fish with a spatula and turn. Breading should be lightly browned. Thin fish will need 1 minute on the second side, thicker, firmer fillets up to 3 minutes. Remove to a serving platter in a warm (150°) oven. Add a bit more olive oil if needed, heat before adding the second batch of fish. While making the fish, cook pasta in boiling water according to package directions, drain and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, set aside. When the fish is cooked and out of the pan, add the vinegar to the hot pan, stir, then add cut tomato pieces. Cook over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes until the cut side is browned and the tomatoes are giving up their juice. Add ITALIAN HERB MIX or PASTA SPRINKLE, stirring to blend. Turn heat to low, add pasta and salt, warm over low heat, add Parmesan cheese, stir until barely melting. Divide fish and pasta between 4 plates. Top with BLACK PEPPER to taste. Serve the pasta and fish fillets with a plain steamed vegetable such as broccoli.
