Ingredients

  • 12 baby artichokes, trimmed and halved
  • 7 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 sprigs thyme
  • 4 cups mushrooms such as shiitake, oyster, or maitake, cleaned, trimmed, and shiitake sliced into 1/2-inch pieces, oyster and maitake torn into 2 or 3 pieces each
  • 4 (6-ounce) pieces striped bass fillet, skin-on
  • 1/2 cup fennel fronds, torn
  • 1 teaspoon fennel pollen
  • 16 tomato halves and 1/4 cup oil from Tomato Marmalade
  • 1 cup baby arugula
  • 8 very thin slices Meyer lemon, for serving

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Step 2

    Place artichokes in a large bowl. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and thyme; toss to combine. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and roast until tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, shaking pan, until mushrooms are golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.

  4. Step 4

    Using a sharp knife, slash the skin of each piece of fish a few times. Rub fish with salt, fennel fronds, fennel pollen, and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish, skin-side down. Reduce heat to medium and cook fish 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven and continue cooking until fish is opaque, 5 to 6 minutes more.

  5. Step 5

    Add artichokes to bowl with mushrooms along with tomatoes and oil from tomato marmalade; toss to combine and season with salt and pepper.

  6. Step 6

    Divide artichoke mixture between four plates; top with fish. Garnish with arugula and lemon slices; serve immediately.
