After a brief roast in a hot oven, the ingredients for this easy dinner are extra delicious, and wrapping them in blanched collard leaves makes the dish wonderfully healthy. Paiche is a firm, flavorful fish that roasts beautifully, but you can substitute another thick, meaty fillet such as cod or salmon. Got leftovers? They’re great straight out of the refrigerator!
- 3/4 pound skinless paiche fillet, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 bell peppers, any color, diced
- 1 large seedless orange, peeled and diced
- 1 lemon, peeled and diced (remove any seeds)
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 8 large collard leaves
- 1/3 cup finely diced red onions
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Combine paiche, peppers, orange, lemon and salt in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Roast until fish is just cooked through and peppers are softened, about 15 minutes, stirring once halfway through the cooking time.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot filled halfway with water to a boil. Using a paring knife, make a V-shaped cut into each collard leaf and remove thickest part of rib. Drop leaves 2 at a time into the boiling water and cook until just pliable, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on a kitchen towel.
Lay collard leaves on a work surface, slightly overlapping sides where rib was cut out. Place a scant 1/2 cup fish mixture in the middle, sprinkle with onions and roll up burrito-style.
