Wash produce before use
Prep and cook the fish
- On a cutting board, using a rolling pin or the bottom of a small pot or bowl, lightly crush the coriander seeds.
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the beet powder and crushed coriander.
For skin-on salmon: 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, 1 to 2 minutes.
For skinless salmon: 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 halibut: 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 snapper: Add the fish, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes.
Transfer to a plate to cool slightly. Using a fork, flake the fish into bite-size pieces; if using skin-on salmon or snapper, discard the skin if desired. Wipe out the pan. While the fish cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.
