As beautiful and it is delicious, this smoked tomato drum recipe is sure to impress your family and friends. The Smoked Tomato Blend creates a rich smoky flavor that combines zesty tomato, aromatic onion and garlic to create a completely unique combination of flavors.
4-4oz Drum Filets
2 tsp Roasted Garlic Granules
4 Tbl Smoked Tomato Blend
Mushroom & Sage Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock
2 Tbl cold butter cut into 5 pieces
Season the drum filets on both sides with salt, Roasted Garlic Granules and Smoked Tomato Blend. Heat the Mushroom & Sage Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Saute the drum filets until the flesh around the edges begins to turn white and the fish begins to feel firm to the touch--about 4 minutes. Turn and reduce the heat to low. Continue cooking until the fish is completely cooked through--about 4 minutes.
Move the fish to a plate. Increase the heat to medium and add the tomatoes, bell pepper and garlic and saute until they begin to soften--about 2 minutes. Add the white wine and stock. Bring to a simmer and reduce just a bit. Add a bit of butter and swirl the pan to melt. Continue adding the bits of butter until they're all incorporated. Taste the sauce and adjust with salt and pepper. Ladle the sauce into shallow soup bowls and place a filet of fish on top. Serve with crusty bread for soaking up the sauce.
