Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the fish

Heat the oven to 400°F.

  • In a small bowl, stir together the honey and harissa powder.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or foil, or lightly grease. Place the fish (skin side down for the skin-on salmon, snapper, or barramundi) on the prepared sheet pan and brush the top of the fish evenly with the honey-harissa mixture. Roast, rotating the pan halfway through, until the fish is opaque and flaky, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.


Make the apple-cabbage slaw

  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
  • Core and cut the apple into matchsticks.

In a large bowl, stir together the lemon-tahini dressing base and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the cabbage and apple and toss to combine; season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the squash. 


Prep and cook the squash

  • Cut the squash into ½-inch pieces.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the squash and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper and as much sumac as you like.


Transfer the fish, apple-cabbage slaw, and squash to individual plates. Garnish with as much of the remaining sumac as you like and serve.
