Sand Dabs with Morel Mushrooms and Warm Garlic, Parsley, and Red Wine Vinegar Dressing

Via Fine Cooking

4-1/2 oz. (1 cup) all-purpose flour, for dusting

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1-1/2 lb. whole sand dabs, cleaned and gutted, or sole or flounder fillets

About 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

12 garlic scapes, small heads green garlic, or small scallions, trimmed to about 4 inches

20 medium morel mushrooms

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

6 Tbs. red wine vinegar

Lemon wedges, to serve


Put the flour on a large plate and season with salt and pepper. Pat the fish dry and dredge lightly in the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess.

Heat 2 Tbs. of the oil in a 12-inch, heavy-duty, skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering hot. Cook the fish in batches without crowding until golden and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes a side for whole fish, or 2 to 3 minutes a side for fillets, and transfer to paper towels to drain. Wipe the pan clean and add more oil between batches as needed.

Heat 3/4 cup of the oil, the garlic scapes, green garlic or scallions, and morels in a saucepan over medium heat until the green garlic is just starting to color, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the morels to a small bowl. Add the red wine vinegar and cook 1 minute. Return the morels to the pan, remove from the heat, and season with salt and pepper.

Place the fish on a serving platter, and spoon over the skillet dressing. Serve with the lemon wedges.
