Courses: Main Course
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

  For The Sauce
1/4 lb 113g / 4ozSorrel
1/2 cup 118mlHeavy cream
1 tablespoon 15mlChopped chives
  Coarse salt - to taste
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste
  For The Fish
2   Boned shad fillets - (abt 3/4 lb ea)
  Coarse salt - to taste
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste
2 tablespoons 30mlUnsalted butter - softened
4 tablespoons 60mlHeavy cream

Recipe Instructions

Make the Sauce: Trim the tough stems from the sorrel and shred the leaves fine, setting aside a little for garnish. Wash the leaves and put them in a saucepan. There will be enough water clinging to the leaves to cook the sorrel. Over medium heat, cook the sorrel for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until it is soft and wilted and forms a puree.

In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a boil and let it simmer for 2 or 3 minutes to reduce it slightly. Stir in the sorrel puree and simmer for another minute or two. Strain the sauce, stir in the chives, and season the sauce with some salt and pepper.

For the Fish: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper. Butter a shallow casserole and lay the fish in it in one layer, skin down. Dot the fish with butter and spoon on the cream. Bake the fish for 8 minutes, then turn on the broiler and broil it for 4 minutes.

Reheat the sauce and put it in a sauce-boat. Serve the fish from the casserole, garnished with some of the reserved and finely shredded sorrel, and spoon some sauce over each serving.
