- 3 Idaho® Potatoes peeled and sliced paper thin
- 1 c. clarified butter
- ½ c. black truffle sauce (recipe to follow)
- 1 c. wild arugula
- ¼ c. extra virgin olive oil
Umbrian Black Truffle Sauce
- ½ c. unsalted butter
- 2 T. Umbrian Black Truffle paste
- 2 c. (16 ounces) chicken stock
- ¼ tsp. Salt
- Brush clarified butter onto a piece of parchment paper.
- Place 6 slices of potato overlapping in a straight onto the paper.
- Lay 6 more slices in another row underneath the first row so that they overlap.
- Brush clarified butter on potatoes.
- Season fish with salt and pepper and place in the center of the potatoes.
- Fold the potatoes from the top over the fish and repeat with the potatoes from the bottom so that they meet and make a tight packet. The potatoes should resemble the look of fish scales.
- In a nonstick pan, sauté the fish on medium-high heat on both sides until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy and the fish is cooked through on the inside.
- Place a spoon sauce in the center of a plate so it forms a small pool and place fish on top.
- Garnish with the arugula and drizzle extra virgin olive oil.
