makes two servings
fresh branzino, cleaned and butterflied
2 pieces of good bacon
12 small cleaned shrimp
2 tablespoons good whole grain mustard
1 cup of panko bread crumbs
vegetable oil spray
juice of one fresh lemon
handful French beans ends trimmed
Beans: Steam until tender then sauté with a little butter and lemon juice and season to taste. Add some lemon zest and serve in the fish when ready.
Start by places one strip of bacon on each side of the fish. Now mix together the mustard and the mayo and paint the inside of the fish covering the bacon as well. Place about 12 small cleaned shrimp on the fish scattering evenly and finish with a layer of panko bread crumbs. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees and spray a light coating of
vegatable oil on the bread crumbs before putting in the oven. Now roast
until the fish is golden brown about 15-20 min and you can see the fat
has rendered out of the bacon. Now slid onto a plate and serve with the French beans in the middle
and a little more lemon juice.
