directions for the mushroom duxelle
Melt butter in medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add shallots and ginger and let sweat until they become translucent. Add shiitake mushrooms, then a squeeze of lemon and season with salt and pepper. Let cook, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes.
Strain over bowl and press excess liquid out of mushrooms. Put the expressed liquid back into the pan over medium heat and reduce by half. When ready to plate the fish toss the sugar snap peas in the liquid to heat them up. Bon Appétit!
