Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the onion; start the fregola “risotto”

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].

In a large frying pan [large sauce pot] over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the fregola, tomato sauce, and 3 cups [5 cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the fregola is al dente, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the fish.

2

Prep and cook the fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper. If using halibut or barramundi, cut into 2-inch pieces, discarding the barramundi skin if desired. 
  • Set aside 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] Parmesan for garnish.

When the fregola is al dente, nestle the fish in the fregola, cover, and cook until the fish is opaque and cooked through, the fregola is tender, and most of the liquid is absorbed, 3 to 5 minutes. Gently stir in all but 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] Parmesan. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the fish is cooking, prepare the zucchini.

3

Prep and cook the zucchini

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

In another large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, arrange the zucchini in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the fregola “risotto” and zucchini to individual bowls. Garnish the fregola with the remaining Parmesan and serve.
