From the Test Kitchen

MasterChef

Inspired by a gourmet dish from the August 30 episode of MasterChef Season 8 on FOX, this recipe showcases delicate, flaky rockfish. We’re coating it with a mixture of panko breadcrumbs and fresh thyme, forming a delicious golden-brown crust. Our fish and mashed potatoes come together with a bright lemon-butter pan sauce.

Heat a small pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash, dry, and medium dice the potatoes. Once the pot of water is boiling, add the potatoes and cook 9 to 11 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in a warm place.

While the potatoes continue to cook, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the kale, half the garlic, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until fragrant and the kale is slightly wilted. Add ¼ cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the kale has wilted and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
