Why I Love This Recipe

As many of you know, the traditional Christmas Eve dinner for Italians is fish - be it the Feast of the Seven Fishes or a 13 course marathon, fish and seafood of all varieties make it to the table - baccalà (salted cod fish), pasta with seafood, marinated anchovies, shrimp cocktail and more.The desserts thankfully are fish-free. If you are a keeper of this Italian tradition, Matia's dish is a perfect (and easy) addition to the table. It is also a wonderful midweek meal as total preparation is only about 30 minutes.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound of turbot
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
zest of one lemon
fresh ground black pepper
chili pepper flakes
16 Plum Tomatoes
Cannellini beans (you can use canned or dried – preparation will vary)


Prepare the cannellini beans simply in a sautee pan with olive oil, salt and pepper and set aside

Cut the tomatoes in half lengthwise, take out the seeds and season with salt and thyme

Roast in the oven for 40 minutes at 375

Debone the turbot and take off the skin

Place the turbot skin side down in a hot fry pan with oil (even without skin this side is more resistant) and place in a 375 degree oven for 8 minutes

Place the turbot on a plate and garnish with cannellini beans and tomatoes
