This raisin vinaigrette adds just the right amount of sweetness and tanginess to our baked fish (sub salmon if you can't find arctic char) and sauteed chard. Enjoy over pureed cauliflower for a balanced meal.
Smarts: Marinate fish in the raisin vinaigrette overnight for even more flavor.

  1. Make raisin vinaigrette - Chop raisins and whisk together with balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar, Dijon and cooking oil. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Arctic char - Divide into 4 oz. portions. Rinse and pat dry. Pour raisin vinaigrette portion for fish into a baking dish. Place fish presentation side down (non-skin side = presentation side) in the vinaigrette.
  3. Chard / Garlic - Prep as directed.
  4. Pureed cauliflower - This makes enough for Wednesday’s dinner. Chop cauliflower and place into a microwave-safe bowl with water and garlic cloves, and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 3 to 3 ½ minutes, until tender. Place cooked cauliflower in a food processor with butter and puree until it reaches a smooth consistency. Add more liquid or butter as needed.
