Do you like chocolate?

by Joanne on October 12, 2009

If you love to create with chocolate, there is a new cooking group forming.  To kick it off, there is a cookbook giveaway at Chocolate with Francious.  Check it out and sign up. We’re going to have tons of fun! 

Speaking of chocolate, I’m about to make you cringe..An oven baked haddock in a white chocolate stream. Oh yes!

The white chocolate sauce is sweet so only a small amount under your fish is plenty.  Ted did want a little more just barely dripped over the topped of his fish.  For me, about 1 to 2 TBS under the haddock was perfect.

Oven Baked Haddock in a White Chocolate Stream (Serves 4)

FISH:

  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 TBS milk
  • 6 TBS Nut powder (You simply take your favorite nuts and place in food processor. Grind to a powder.* Be careful not to grind for too long or you’ll end up with “Nut Butter”!)
  • 1lb – 1.3 lbs Fresh Haddock Filet
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

WHITE CHOCOLATE STREAM:

  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Broth
  • 1/2 cup Half and Half (I used Fat Free. The nutrition calculations below are for full fat half and half)
  • 1/4 cup Evaporated Milk (refrigerate the unused portion and make some really yummy dessert!)
  • 1 TBS white chocolate
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 375F.  Beat the eggs and the milk together in a dish.  In a separate dish, place the nut powder and add salt and pepper.  Coat fish with the eggs then dip in the nut powder.  NOTE:  The coating will BARELY cover the fish.  It is simply to enhance flavor not to similate a batter (lets keep it healthy, Guys!).  Heat the oil in frying pan on medium heat. When the oil is hot, add fish and cook about 2 minutes per side. This depends on the thickness of your haddock fillet.

Remove the fish to a foil lined baking dish for easy clean up and finish in the oven for about 8 minutes. Serve over the White Chocolate Stream and arrange a green vegetable (such as oven roasted brussel sprouts) along both sides (the “grassy” shores ).

Instructions for the W.C. Stream:

Cook the shallots in olive oil over medium high heat about 2 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook one more minute.  Add the broth and let boil for 3 minutes.   Add the half and half and the evaporated milk and boil for another 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and add the chocolate, stirring until it melts.
