Wash produce before use
Prep the “dirty rice” ingredients
- Thinly slice the mushrooms.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
- If using the jalapeño, remove the stem, ribs, and seeds; thinly slice the jalapeño. Wash your hands after handling.
Start the “dirty rice”
Add the cauliflower “rice” and up to ¼ cup [½ cup] water if dry, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is just tender and the liquid has mostly evaporated, 3 to 5 minutes [4 to 6 min].
While the cauliflower “rice” cooks, prepare the fish.
Prep and cook the fish
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season the sole or trout lightly with salt and pepper, the halibut generously. Sprinkle the fish with the blackening spice blend.
Finish the “dirty rice”
- Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
- Measure the water for the “dirty rice.”
- Juice the lemon.
- Measure the lemon juice.
- Garnish with the scallions.
