Stephanie Izard's Juniper-Grilled Fish Stuffed with Fennel & Onion
Ingredients
  • 1  medium  fennel bulb, cut into bite-size strips
  • 1  red onion, sliced
  • 3  cloves  garlic, minced
  • 1  teaspoon  juniper berries* (find them in the spice or gourmet section)
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  •  Salt
  •  Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  quality gin
  • 1  whole black sea bass or red snapper (about 2 pounds), head and tail intact (ask at fish counter to remove bones and backbone to make pocket)
Directions

1. For stuffing, in a large skillet slowly cook fennel, onion, garlic, and juniper berries in hot oil over medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes or until fennel is tender. Season with salt and pepper. Carefully add gin (cooking liquid may flare briefly); cook about 2 minutes, allowing liquid to absorb into vegetables. Remove from heat. Cool stuffing slightly.

2. Heat grill to medium-high. Score the skin of the fish. Season inside of fish with salt and pepper, then stuff. Season outside with salt and pepper. Grill fish on a well-oiled rack for 7 to 8 minutes on each side, checking inside for doneness. Cut fish into portions.

From the Test Kitchen
  • Use only berries labeled as food-safe. Those growing in yards are not edible. Even some edible berries cause allergic reactions. Pregnant women should avoid all juniper berries.
