Wash produce before use
Prep the salad ingredients
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
- Cut the fennel lengthwise into quarters and cut away the core; thinly slice the quarters lengthwise.
- Zest enough lemon to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp], then juice 1 lemon [save the remaining lemon for another use]. Set aside the zest for finishing the salad.
- Cut the radishes in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons.
- Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely tear the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
In a large bowl, stir together the onion, fennel, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice; season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the snap peas.
Cook the snap peas; finish the salad
In a dry large frying pan over high heat, add the snap peas in a single layer and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to the bowl with the onion and fennel. Do not clean the pan.
To the bowl, add the radishes, lemon zest, half the mint, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare your protein.
Prep your protein
Pork, chicken, or steak strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper and the fennel spice blend.
Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper and the fennel spice blend.
Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; crumble or cut into ½-inch pieces. Season lightly with salt and pepper and the fennel spice blend.
Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper and the fennel spice blend.
Cook your protein
In the same pan used for the snap peas, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and just cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for regular shrimp; 4 to 6 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, pork, steak, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken.
Transfer the snap pea and radish salad to individual plates and top with your protein. Garnish with the remaining mint and serve.
