Pan Seared Haddock with Broccoli puree (Merluzzo con pure di broccoli)

Here is a great weeknight dinner, pan seared haddock with a broccoli puree, easy and fast.

For the fish:
2 fillets of haddock 110 g (4 oz)
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Heat a heavy bottom pan with the butter and olive oil, season the fish with salt & pepper. When the butter starts to melt add the fish and cook about 4 minutes per side. The fish will cook quickly. When the fish is cooked remove to a plate.

For the broccoli:
1 head of broccoli
1/2 leek
salt & peper
lemon & zest of one lemon
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
Cut up the broccoli and leek and heat a pan of water and bring to a boil, add the salt and broccoli and leek and cook till tender. Drain the broccoli and with a blender or imersion blender puree the broccoli and leek, add a pat of butter and season with salt and pepper.
I added a serrano pepper because I love the heat.
