2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the lettuce and apple-cucumber slaw

  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; separate the leaves. Set aside for serving. 
  • Peel the apple, if desired; core and cut into matchsticks. 
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut into matchsticks.

In a medium bowl, toss together the apple, cucumber, coconut vinegar, and as much Marash chile as you like. Season generously to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal. 


Prep the fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel (if using barramundi, discard the skin). Cut the barramundi or halibut into 1-inch pieces. Season the fish lightly with salt and pepper.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the coconut-flour blend with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.

Working with a few pieces of fish at a time, dredge in the coconut-flour blend, turning to coat all sides; shake off any excess. 


Cook the fish

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the fish in a single layer and cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned on one side, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn the fish and cook until opaque and golden brown, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate and season lightly with salt. Wipe out the pan and add more oil between batches if needed.


Transfer the lettuce leaves to individual plates. Top with the fish and apple-cucumber slaw and drizzle with the Korean BBQ sauce blend. Serve any remaining slaw on the side.
