Horseradish Crusted Halibut
10 tb Freshly grated or prepared horseradish, drained
1/2 c Fresh white bread crumbs
2 tb Unsalted butter
1 tb Chervil leaves
1 tb Tarragon leaves
1 pn Freshly ground pepper
2 ts Egg white
4 Halibut or other firm white fish fillets (6-8 oz each), skin removed
1 ts Olive oil
2 Bunches fresh spinach, washed well
2 tb Balsamic vinegar
Heat oven to 400'. In a food processor, combine horseradish, bread crumbs, butter, herbs, and pepper. Pulse 2 or 3 times until combined and herbs are coarsely chopped. Add egg white and pulse 2 or 3 times.
Season both sides of fish with salt and pepper. Pat 3 or 4 T of the mixture firmly onto one side of each fillet. Heat a large nonstick, ovenproof pan over medium-low heat. Add oil and fillets, crust side down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Carefully turn, then place pan in oven for 7 to 10 minutes, or until done to taste.
While fish is baking, place spinach in a medium saucepan. The spinach leaves should still have water clinging to them; if they don't, sprinkle with a few drops. Add salt, cover, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour vinegar into a small saucepan and cook over high heat until reduced by half, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
Remove fish from oven. Serve each fillet with some of the wilted spinach and a spoonful of the reduced vinegar alongside.
