|Fish Moco (minus the over easy egg)|
We loved this recipe!
Gosh, it feels like we've already typed this post, but can't seem to find it. Perhaps we just imagined what we would say about this dish. Just before the female half ended up with illness after illness, our fish guy had some fresh shutome or swordfish. The female half reminisced about "small kid days" when her grandparents cooked fish with just Hawaiian salt and pepper.
For reasons we can't remember, we decided not only to pan fry our fish but to make a fish moco. Loco moco's as we mentioned before is a local favorite. A "traditional" loco moco in most cases is a mound of white rice topped with a hamburger patty, over easy egg and lots of gravy. As the male half puts it, a heart attack on a plate.
This meal was very easy to prepare!
For the gravy, we used Dukanitout's mushroom gravy recipe without the mushrooms and we used chicken broth.
Serves 2 (one of us has no carbs/starch)
Prep Time: 10 - 30 minutes (we had to remove the skin from our fish, etc)
Cook Time: 10 minutes
1 lb. shutome (swordfish) or any other fish you'd like, cut into thinner "medallions"
salt and pepper to taste
egg (usually 1-2 per person - this is optional)
For Dukanitout's gravy - minus the mushrooms:
1 c. chicken broth
1/4 t. Dijon mustard
1 t. fresh thyme
1 T. cornstarch
salt and pepper
Prepare your gravy ahead of time, then reheat just before serving. Combine all gravy ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour gravy into a small pot and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until your gravy thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Salt and pepper your fish...you can even use Adobo Seasoning to season your fish. Heat a grill pan over medium heat, spray your pan with a little bit of non-stick spray and fry fish until cooked. Our fish took just a couple minutes to cook on each side. Try not to over cook your fish or it'll dry out.
Just before your fish is done, in a small frying pan, fry up an over easy egg for each person (or two). Plate goes like this...fish first, egg, then your heated gravy. Sorry, we forgot to take a photo with the egg on the fish.
If you're in Consolidation, you can have this over brown or red rice.
Enjoy...we sure did!
