Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Follow the instructions in the Vegetable Vinaigrette recipe
  2. Lightly season shad filet, and dust with fresh parsley.
  3. Place in hot oiled skillet with skin side down. Sear for 2 minutes on one side, then 2–3 minutes on the other side. The skin will probably stick, but this does not matter. Get a light caramelization on the flesh side, and cook until barely done.
  4. Transfer shad to paper towel and blot off excess oil.
  5. Place shad on plate of tomato slices.
  6. Top with Vegetable Vinaigrette, then top again with crispy shoestring potatoes. Sprinkle with fresh herbs.

Variations Edit

  • Any other colorful tasty vegetable may be added to the vinaigrette, such as a fennel bulb, zucchini, or the outside of a firm tomato.
