Haddock Steaks with Olive Tapenade with Evan Kalman @add1tbsp

Ingredients

For the steaks
  • 4 haddock steaks, 1/2lb each 
  • 6 castelvetrano olives, pitted and chopped 
  •  1/2 cup roasted peppers, chopped 
  •  2 Tbsp lemon juice 
  •  6 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 
  •  1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped 
  •  2 Tsp fresh oregano, chopped 
  •  Kosher salt and pepper

    Preparation Instructions

    1. Season each haddock steak with salt and pepper. Heat a 10-inch skillet with 1 tsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear the haddock on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
    2. In a small bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and season with salt and pepper. Spoon over the warm haddock to serve.

    Tips

    Also known as dolce olives, Castelvetranos are the key to this recipe—they’re creamy, mild, and almost fruit-like, which makes them an incredible compliment to seared fish.
