Recipe

Pompano, one of the favorites of all seafood lovers, is accented here with sweet juicy crabmeat and brought to perfection with fresh citrus. All is cooled with fresh mint. Lovely.

Yield: 4 portions

Ingredients

  • 4 pompano fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 ounces fresh lump crabmeat, cartilage removed
  • 1 large orange, peeled, segmented, seeds removed
  • 1 sweet grapefruit, peeled, segmented, seeds removed
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons dried bread crumbs
  • Chopped fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a baking dish.

2. Arrange the fillets in one layer in the baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

3. Divide the crabmeat among the four fillets, arranging it on top of the fish. Then arrange a row of alternating orange and grapefruit segments on each fillet. Drizzle orange juice over each.

4. Blend the butter and bread crumbs, and sprinkle over the citrus segments.

5. Bake until the fillets are cooked through and the crumbs are crisp and golden, 15 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh mint, and serve immediately.
