Wash produce before use
Make the jicama-kale salad
- Using a sharp knife or a peeler, remove the peel from the jicama; cut into enough bite-size pieces to measure 1 cup [2 cups]. Save the rest for another use or snacking.
- Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the orange; coarsely chop the fruit. Discard any seeds.
In a medium bowl, stir together the honey-lime vinaigrette base and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the jicama, orange, and kale and toss to coat. Let stand, tossing occasionally, while you prepare the fish.
Prep and cook the fish
- Pat the fish dry on a paper-towel-lined plate; season lightly with salt and pepper and the blackening spice blend.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking.
Arrange the fish in an even layer and cook, undisturbed, until very lightly browned on one side, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn the fish and cook until opaque and flaky, about 1 minute.
Add the fish and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes.
For barramundi and snapper:
Add the fish, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes.
Transfer the jicama-kale salad to individual bowls and top with the fish. Garnish with the pumpkin seeds and serve.
- Measure the jicama.
- Snack on the leftover jicama.
- Peel the orange by hand.
- Time the fish.
- Garnish the dish with the pumpkin seeds.
