haddock and the summer kitchen! kitchen!

Haddock and the summer vegetables of zucchini and cherry tomatoes.
Pan fried haddock smothered with roasted summer cherry jersey tomatoes and
roasted garlic nestled on a blanket of paper thin sliced zucchinis.
Perfection for a light and delicious summer meal.
 Easy to prepare and a truly perfection for a delicious light summer meal. Samaha market is brimming with the summer vegetables such that it is quite difficult to decide what to get. There were about 3-4 varieties of everything. The zucchinis looked so freshly picked, and the cherry tomatoes are so red and sweet and inviting. Perfect for what I have in mind for a light dinner.

1 container of sweet cherry tomatoes
2 medium size fresh young zucchinis
6 cloves of garlic with skin on
Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup or more of a good white wine
Kosher salt/black pepper
2 medium haddock fillet cut into 3's and season with salt & pepper

Thinly sliced the zucchinis in a mandoline about 1/8" thick or in a food processor slicer. Sprinkle with a little salt; drizzle some olive oil and set aside in a large bowl.

Preheat oven to 350 degree F
On a small baking sheet lined with foil, spread the tomatoes and cloves of garlic (with the skin on). Sprinkle with olive oil, some white wine, and salt. Roast for about 30-40 minutes until the tomatoes start to get mushy and starting to carmelize. Remove the garlic and peel the skin after it has cooled. Transfer the roasted tomatoes, juice and all into a deep pan; mashed the roasted garlic and add to the pan. Add some olive oil and a teaspoom of sugar and stir. Let simmer on low heat. Check for seasoning.

On another skillet heat some olive oil and pan fry the haddock on both sides until golden. About 2 minutes on each side.

Take out the zucchinis and transfer them to a deep serving platter; sprinkle some olive oil: add 1/3 of the roasted tomatoes on top of the zucchinis. Place the pan fried haddock on top and add the rest of the roasted tomatoes on top of the haddock.
