Baked Dory Fish with Oyster Mushroom


I felt like some fish the other day and to me there is no fish that is easier to make than Dory. I like Dory fillets not only becuase they are easy to cook but also because its the kind of fish I like - with no bones at all!


I decided to keep things very simple this time and just sprinkle a little salt and pepper as well as a little sage and oregano as seasoning. I then baked the fish, wrapped in aluminium foil to seal in the flavours.

I also wanted to try pairing the Dory with Oyster mushrooms so what I did was to stir fry some Oyster Mushrooms with garlic and then placed it on a plate to act as a 'bed' for the fish. This way, I wanted the mushrooms to be eaten together with the fish rather than as a side dish.

Finally, I used the juices that ran out from the fish to make a very light sauce. I just added in about a teaspoon of lemon juice and served this separately. The kids liked the lemon sauce but I dont think it was really needed as the fish paired very nicely with the mushrooms and was delicious on its own.

Valli,
Dory is also know as John Dory, St Pierre and Sutchi and I think a variety of other similar fish. I'm sure you can find it in your neck of the woods as its a deep water fish and available all over the world (as far as I know)

Cynthia,
Thanks! I'm glad you like the garnish. Oyster mushrooms are thin and look like a large flattened oyster - hence the name!
