Prep and cook the fish

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for all fish options.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season the salmon or halibut generously with salt and pepper, the trout lightly.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the fish (skin side down for the salmon or trout) and cook until lightly browned (and the salmon or trout skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes for salmon or halibut, 2 to 4 minutes for trout. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes for salmon or halibut, 1 to 2 minutes for trout. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.
While the fish cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; make the apple-cabbage slaw

  • Cut the apples lengthwise into quarters and cut away the cores; cut each quarter lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices, then crosswise into ½-inch cubes.
  • Strip the basil and tarragon leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
In the same pan used for the fish, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the apples, cabbage, and fennel seeds, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is wilted and the apples are warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Smear the chimichurri onto individual plates, top with the fish, and spoon the warm apple-cabbage slaw alongside. Garnish with the basil and tarragon and serve.
