For an easy one-dish meal, serve the savory herbed fish over a bed of wilted kale with mushrooms and tomato. Keep the Mediterranean Herb Mix on hand to use in other seafood, poultry, or pork recipes.

How to Make It

1. Combine oregano, rosemary, thyme, mint, and sage in a clean glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Secure lid and shake until seasonings are mixed well. Store in a cool, dry place or refrigerator for up to 6 months. Just before using, crush the herbs between your fingers, with a mortar and pestle, or in a spice mill to release their flavors.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms release their liquid and begin to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Add chopped kale, tomato, and 1 teaspoon herb mix. Cook, stirring occasionally, until kale is wilted and mushrooms are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Remove from heat, cover, and keep warm.

3. Sprinkle fish with 1 teaspoon herb mix and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add fish and cook until flesh is opaque, 2 to 4 minutes per side, depending on thickness. To serve, place vegetable mixture on plates and top with fish. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
