Crock Pot Au (Marlin) for two

HE SAID: Good, but a little dry, try adding butter.
SHE SAID: Good, but too dry, should've cut the fish into smaller pieces.

This tasted better than it looked
We've been eating a lot of chicken lately, but on Valentine's Day we attended a wedding and had two wonderful fish dishes...inspiration...we should have fish this weekend.  Found some nice pieces of au (marlin) and salmon fillets - fresh too!

Decided to make the au (marlin) on Saturday night in a light wine sauce.  Shouldn't have added the asparagus in...wished we sauteed them separately.  The sauce was nice and light, it flavored up the fish and mushrooms nicely.  Next time we'll cut the fillets into 2 inch wide pieces.  The outer edges of the fish was juicy and tasty.  The middle was too dry and lacked flavor.


Serves 2 (plus leftovers)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 3-4 hours on low
2-qt. crock pot

1 1/2 lbs. au (marlin) or a flaky white fish fillet
1/2 c. dry white wine
4 baby portabella mushrooms, sliced
1 lemon, juiced (add some of the rind too if you wish)
pepper to taste
1/4 t. kosher salt
1 T. olive oil

Grease crock pot with olive oil.  Cut fish fillet into 2 inch wide pieces and place in crock pot.  Add mushrooms, wine, lemon juice (and rind), pepper and salt.  Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on low.

We served this with Japanese rice and white corn.
