Sturgeon with Thyme-Butter Sauce In (Step By Step)


4 medium zucchini (1 1/2 pounds), sliced crosswise 1/2 inch thick Salt 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 1 teaspoon chopped thyme Freshly ground pepper 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Four 6-ounce skinless farmed ossetra sturgeon or wild Pacific halibut fillets 3 tablespoons homemade red wine vinegar 3/4 cup water 1 medium shallot, thinly sliced 3 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 375°. On a large rimmed baking sheet, sprinkle the zucchini slices with salt. Arrange them in an even layer and let stand for 1 hour. In a small bowl, blend the butter with the thyme and season with salt and pepper.

Rinse the zucchini slices and pat dry; wipe off the baking sheet. Return the zucchini to the baking sheet and toss with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Spread the slices in an even layer and bake until golden brown on the bottom, about 30 minutes. Transfer the zucchini to a platter.

Step 3   

Sprinkle the sturgeon with 1 tablespoon of the vinegar and refrigerate for 10 minutes. In a large, heavy skillet, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of vinegar with the water, bouquet garni, and shallot and bring to a boil. Season the poaching liquid lightly with salt and pepper and add the sturgeon fillets. Cover tightly and simmer over low heat, turning once, until the fish is barely cooked through about 8 minutes. Transfer the sturgeon to a large plate. Strain the poaching liquid into a bowl.

Step 4   

Wipe out the skillet and set it over high heat. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat until shimmering. Add the sturgeon fillets, boned side down, and cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook for 1 minute longer. Set the sturgeon on the zucchini and cover with foil to keep warm.
