This recipe is from Mikkel Karstad’s cookbook, Spis (meaning “eat” in Danish). This fish dish can be served with potatoes, a salad or cooked greens.
4 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1 cup (240 milliliters) chicken stock or broth
1/3 cup (75 milliliters) dry white wine
7 ounces (200 grams) Brussels sprouts, trimmed and leaves separated
1 medium tomato, cored, seeded and chopped
1/3 cup (50 grams) toasted almonds, coarsely chopped
1 sprig tarragon, leaves coarsely chopped
4 skinless sole or plaice fillets
Freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Method Melt 1/2 tablespoon of the butter over medium-low heat in a sauté pan. Add the shallot and sauté until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes. Pour in the stock and wine, increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Simmer until the volume is reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Strain the sauce through a sieve into a medium saucepan.
