Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the puttanesca sauce ingredients

  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Coarsely chop the olives, checking for any pits.
  • Coarsely chop the capers; set aside for garnish.

Place the zucchini slices in a single layer on a paper-towel-lined plate and sprinkle lightly with salt. While the zucchini is standing, start the puttanesca sauce.

2

Cook the puttanesca sauce

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

Add the puttanesca sauce base, tomatoes, olives, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce starts to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the oregano. While the sauce is simmering, prepare the fish.

3

Prep and cook the fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. 

 

For sole: 

Add the fish and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 1 to 2 minutes.

 

For salmon and 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. While the fish is cooking, finish the puttanesca sauce.

4

Finish the puttanesca sauce

Pat the zucchini slices dry, then add them to the puttanesca sauce. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the zucchini and puttanesca sauce to individual plates. Top with the fish and spoon over any remaining sauce. Garnish with the capers and serve.
