Baked Porgy with Basil

Serves 4.

4 (3/4 pound) porgies , whole, scaled,

finned, gilled and thoroughly cleaned.

3 tablespoons butter or margarine

3 tablespoons shallots or green onions, minced

3/4 teaspoons salt

1 cup dry white wine

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

3 tablespoons basil (20 leaves) fresh, chopped,

or 1 1/2 tablespoons dried basil

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Use a cooking spray or coat the bottom of a baking pan with vegetable oil. Spread shallots or green onions in the baking pan. With a sharp knife make several slits along the sides of each porgy. Place fish on the bed of onions and sprinkle with salt and chopped basil. Set aside for approximately 5 minutes to mix flavors. Pour wine over the fish and dot the fish with the butter or margarine. Cover with foil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until the fish flesh turns opaque and begins to flake.

This recipe looks super yummy and I can’t wait to try it tonight. I will have to make a second meal for the family since they are not that into fish like I am. I might make a simple pasta dish for my husband and munchkins.

Thank you for stopping by and for reading. I hope that you find something meaningful and helpful during this visit 🙂
