This fish with blue cheese sauce is a classic and easy recipe. I used trout but you can also use salmon if you like.
We are going to bake the fish with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. While it cooks in the oven we will make a sauce with blue cheese, cream and capers. Be patient when making your sauce and stir it until all the cheese has melted.
Make sure to remove the capers from the brine before adding them to your sauce. You do not need to rinse them is you do not want to — I never do.
This meal can be made in less than 30 minutes and is great for a weeknight meal or when you have company. Delish.
Here is what you will need for this delicious fish with blue cheese sauce:
1 whole trout or salmon fillet – skinned, bones removed
A handful of parsley – leaves and stems
Salt & Pepper – preferably white
Heat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Place it in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover with the parsley and place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes until cooked and flaky.
Remove from oven.
FOR THE SAUCE:
1/4 cup (2 oz) dry white wine
1 cup (8 oz) heavy cream
1 cu (115 grams) blue cheese
1 TBS capers
Chopped parsley for garnish
Place the wine in a small pot and cook for about five minutes until it reduces to half. Add the cream and cheese.
Stir until the cheese melts. Add the capers. Simmer for a few minutes until the sauce thickens.
Discard the parsley and place the cooked fish on a platter. Pour the sauce on the fish and garnish with the chopped parsley. Serve.
