25 – 35 Minutes
Our staff nutritionist, Kaley Todd, gives a big thumbs up to this Mediterranean-inspired dinner. The bright winter citrus offers an abundance of vitamin C, while the roasted fennel and potatoes provide potassium, fiber, and strong anti-inflammatory powers. Almond meal replaces the traditional breadcrumb coating for the fish, and boosts the heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fats.
- ¾ pound purple sweet potato
- 1 bulb fennel
- 2 Cara Cara oranges
- 1 ounce oil-cured black olives
- 1 lemon
- Fresh flat-leaf parsley
- Two 5-ounce sole fillets
- 1 pasture-raised organic egg
- ½ cup almond meal
- 1 tablespoon capers
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (optional)
Roast the purple sweet potato and fennel
- Trim the ends from the sweet potato; cut the potato in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
- Cut the fennel into quarters. Cut away the solid core, then cut each quarter lengthwise into ¼-inch-thick slices.
While the potatoes cook, make the salad and cook the fish.
Make the salad
- Using a sharp knife or your hands, peel the oranges. Cut the fruit crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. Working over a large bowl, separate the slices into large segments. Discard any seeds.
- Coarsely chop the black olives.
Prep the fish
- Zest the lemon and cut it into wedges.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Pat the sole dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
Dip the sole into the egg mixture, then dredge the fish in the almond meal, pressing to adhere.
