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

Wash produce before use


Prep the ingredients

  • Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets; trim any coarse stems.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Rinse the white beans.
  • Coarsely chop the olives.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt, if desired, and pepper.
  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the 2nd lemon for another use.]


Cook the vegetables and fish

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the mirepoix, season with salt, if desired, and pepper, and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the broccoli and garlic and cook until the broccoli is starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the beans, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] white wine (from your pantry), if using, and 1 cup [1½ cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add the olives and fish, and cook, turning the fish once, until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side for cod, 3 to 5 minutes per side for halibut, and 1 to 2 minutes per side for trout. Remove from the heat, stir in 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and season to taste with salt, if desired, and pepper.


Transfer the fish and vegetables to individual plates. Garnish with the lemon zest and as much Marash chile as you like and serve.
