2 onionsA Savory Repast
3 stalks celery
1 carrot
1 jalapeño pepper
2 tblsp. olive oil
1 5-oz. can tomato paste
1/2 bottle white wine
1 10-oz. can tomatoes, chopped
2 cups water
6 oz. calamari
1 fennel (bulb)
6 oz. arugula
1 quart vegetable oil
Flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
8 oz. redfish, skin on

Sauté onions, celery, carrots and jalapeño in olive oil until soft and there’s no color. Add tomato paste and white wine. Reduce the sauce to half. Add tomatoes and water, bring to a simmer and keep it simmering for one hour. Strain liquid into a container.

In a skillet, sauté sliced calamari, and when it’s finished, add fennel and arugula leaves, cooking until arugula leaves are wilted. Prepare redfish by dredging in flour and seasoning with salt and pepper. To cook redfish, place it inside a metal ring mold and fry in oil for about 5 minutes. (Oil needs to be at 350 degrees.)

Place sauce on plate, enough so it reaches the rims of the plate. Place fried fish in the center, then top with calamari and arugula mixture.
