Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the peperonata

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup]. 
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; thinly slice the pepper. 
  • Cut the tomatoes in half. 
  • Coarsely chop the dill; measure 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] dill for the peperonata and set aside the rest for garnish. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion and pepper are tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and vinegar and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Remove from the heat, stir in 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] dill, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. While the peperonata is cooking, prepare the zucchini.

2

Prep and cook the zucchini

  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise, then lengthwise into ½-inch-thick sticks. 

In the same pan used for the peperonata, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the zucchini, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and just tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, start preparing the fish. 

3

Prep and cook the fish

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

For skin-on salmon: 

Add the fish, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 1 to 2 minutes. 

 

For halibut and skinless salmon:

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

Serve

Transfer the fish and zucchini to individual plates. Top the fish with the peperonata, garnish with as much of the remaining dill as you like, and serve.
