Recipe as described on foodnetwork.com. Slight variation based on how I made it.
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, plus more for garnish
- 1⁄2 lb bulk italian hot sausage
- 2 large garlic cloves
- 1 medium onion
- 1 1⁄2 lbs baby red potatoes or 1 1⁄2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup dry vermouth or 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
- 4 haddock or 4 cod fish fillets
- 1 handful flat leaf parsley, chopped, optional for garnish
- 1⁄2 lemon (optional)
- crusty bread (optional)
- Heat 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil, a turn of the pan, over medium-high heat. Heads up: use a skillet with a tight fitting lid. Add the sausage and crumble while browning, about 3 to 4 minutes. While the sausage browns, crush the garlic. Peel the onion, trim off the root end and then thinly slice. Add the garlic, onions and potatoes to the pan with the sausage and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Douse the pan with half of the vermouth or wine, cover the pan with a lid and cook 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the lid, add the tomatoes and gently stir into the potatoes. Set fillets on top of the potatoes and douse with the remaining vermouth or wine. Season the fish with salt and pepper, to taste. Set lid in place and cook until the fish is opaque, about 6 to 8 minutes.
- Top the fish with parsley, the juice of 1/2 a lemon and garnish with a liberal drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. To serve, transfer the fish and sausage mixture from the pan into shallow bowls to hold the juice. Use the crusty bread to soak in the juices at the table.
Yummo! LOL!! Seriously this is very good. My husband saw it on food network and wanted to try it. He cooked it himself. I helped a little bit with the prep. He used red potatoes, haddock, mild sausage, and chicken broth instead of vermouth. It was very easy to make and is delicious. We ended up having 12 tiny little fillets b/c that's what was in the package so it cooked up pretty quick.
I made this last night after watching Rachel make it a while back. And we LOOOOVED it! It is an interesting and hearty fish dish. My changes were minor, but a little bit healthier and more economical. Instead of Italian sausage, i browned lean turkey sausage and added Italian spice blend and fennel seeds. I also used a drained can of fire roasted tomatoes and red wine. It's what i had on hand but gave great flavor. This one is a keeper- thanks for posting!
