Crunchy Scamp with Basil Cream Sauce Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients:

  •     For Fish:
  • 2 scamp grouper fillets (or any firm, white-fleshed fish) about 6-8 ounces each and 1 inch thick
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Panko (or more, depending on size of fish)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • For Basil Cream Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto (store bought or homemade)
How to cook Crunchy Scamp with Basil Cream Sauce:
  • Heat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Rinse fillets and remove any bones. Pat dry with a paper towel and set aside.
  • Prepare dredging dishes - 1 for egg, 1 for Panko.
  • Lightly salt and pepper each fillet.
  • Dip each piece of fish in egg wash, then Panko. Set aside until ready to fry.
  • Heat nonstick pan to medium-high. Add coconut oil to pan. When hot, place fish in pan. Cook on medium-high for about 1 minute, then reduce to medium.
  • Flip fish when brown crust forms (you may need to add a bit more coconut oil to pan to ensure crunchiness).
  • When bottom layer is brown (about 1 minute), turn off heat and place pan in preheated oven.
  • Leave in oven for about 5 minutes - you don't want to overcook the fish!
  • Meanwhile prepare Basil Cream Sauce. Heat heavy cream in a small sauce pan. When warm, whisk in the basil pesto.
  • Remove the fish from oven and serve immediately with basil cream.
  •     Enjoy!

Comment(s):

Scamp is like the best Grouper you’ve ever had. It is beautiful, white, light and flaky. It’s also versatile, in that you can prepare it in a variety of ways. Its flavor profile is mild - similar to that of Halibut or Snapper.
Since you can’t find scamp readily at the supermarket, this recipe works well with any grouper or flaky, white fish.
