  • 1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 T capers drained and rinsed
  • 1 t lemon zest
  • 4 t chives, chopped
  • 1 t anchovies, finely chopped
  • 2 t Parmesan reggiano, grated
  • 1 T fresh basil, chopped
  • 2T fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Place all ingredients in a small bowl and gently whisk.

Pre heat oven to 400º

Heat ovenproof heavy-duty pan or skillet over med. high heat.

Dust bluefish fillets in Drakes. Add about 1 T olive oil to pan. When oil is sizzling hot add bluefish, skin side up. When fillet caramelizes and develops a nice crust (about 2-3 min.) flip and pop in the oven for another 6-8 min. or until fillet is opaque in the center.

Heat amount of sauce that you’d like in a small saucepan and serve over the center of each portion.

If you would prefer to bake/ broil instead of using the pan, simply bake fillets at 350º (basted with a little olive oil) for 7 min. Then click up to broil to brown the top for another 2-5 min. or until opaque in center.
