Baked John Dory with Lemon Caper Dressing
adapted from Martyna Angell / Wholesome Cook
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 2-3 extra to serve
2 John Dory fillets with skin on
2 teaspoons capers in brine
juice from ½ lemon
salt and freshly ground black pepper
watercress or other salad greens
your favorite light salad dressing
Preheat oven to 350°.
Grease an oven-proof dish or skillet with olive oil and place fish, skin side down, on top. Season top of fish with olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Bake for 10 minutes (thicker fillets may take longer).
Remove from oven and transfer to serving plates. Add extra olive oil, lemon juice and capers to the pan and mix well. Drizzle over the fish and season with pepper.
Serve with a mixed green salad or watercress with your favorite salad dressing. Note: with a light preparation like this, we like to use a very simple, light salad dressing.
